I'm a big fan of Italian food, especially pasta and pizza with meaty sauces. What are your favorite Italian meals? I could use some inspiration. :)
There are tons of recipes on the forums here, what sort of recipe are you looking for?
pasta e ceci (creamy chickpea soup with pasta)
pasta e fagioli (same, with beans)
lentil soup over toasted bread rubbed with garlic
countless pasta dishes - everyone knows about tomato sauces (though not everyone knows that most of them are meatless) but there are lots of types of pasta with vegetables, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchine,
and tons of ways to cook vegetables,
just let us know what you're interested in

To address the "meaty" part of your question, you should look into "Ragù" type sauces, which usually (always?) contain meat.
Here's the Ragù alla Bolognese which I make on a regular basis, I love it: http://culinariaitalia.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/ragu-alla-bolognese-authentic-recipe/
More Ragùs I just found (never tried them yet), you'll have to use a translator such as Google:
To get away from the "meaty" part of your question, you absolutely should try siduri's pasta with cauliflower and garlic. Delicious!! http://www.cheftalk.com/t/62392/pasta-garlicky-goodness-in-every-bite#post_326373
