For no particular reason, I've never liked having more than a single source of carbs in any given dish.  For example, spaghetti ragu with garlic bread.  Or, to cite a triple whammy, potato curry with rice and naan.  More of a pet peeve than a principle, I wouldn't go so far as to refuse any such combination if someone were to offer it to me, but I wouldn't put together anything that way myself.  (I also don't like multiple types of meat in a dish, such as pizza with pepperoni and sausage.)  

Inspired by idiosyncrasy, I came up with this idea of serving a thick meaty tomato sauce (see most recently 3.323 Pasta Fresca in Meatball Mash Sauce), plus some freshly grated parmesan, with hand-torn chunks of plain baguette--no pasta, of course.  It makes for an awesome appetizer/anju, one that can be prepared well in advance and sit around for hours at no risk of decline in quality.
