Pasta is good all on its own, but sometimes we crave just a bit of meat with it. OK, maybe more than a bit — it's so easy to eat just one more tender, juicy meatball or add another scoop of rich ragù, chunks of slow-simmered beef or lamb falling to pieces in the sauce. If you're looking for a bit of meat with your pasta (or vice versa) here are 10 recipes to try: Five meaty sauces (duck, beef, lamb, and more) and five meatball recipes — each of them a winner, we promise.
