A version of this craveable classic was an early favorite at my Bar Siena in Chicago. I’ve simplified it here by using ground beef for the tomato sauce that’s flavored with onions, carrots and celery. You’ll alternately layer the pasta with bechamel sauce that has a touch of nutmeg. The flavor profile is amazing – and it’s a comforting dish that’s perfect any time of year – for a special occasion or a weeknight dinner.
