    Delicious and so easy! I added a bit more garlic and I just use the entire can of tomato paste rather than measuring a half cup. I always use ground lamb as well. I love the cinnamon with it, just a bit of added flavor but not too much. And I top with grated parmesan.

    I used 1lb. of ground beef and 1 lb. of ground pork because lamb it just too expensive. I doubled the garlic, we are a garlic heavy crew. It was a different spin on meat sauce. I don't know if I would make it again.

    Good recipe...the lamb gives it lots of flavor. I also think you can't go wrong adding some extra salt and pepper, or even extra cinnamon. The nutrition info from the print version is: 569 cals, 16.6g fat (6.7g saturated), 21.9g protein, 67.1g carbs, 2.8g fiber.

    The meat sauce was good, but the cinnamon was way too strong for my tastes - it ended up overpowering the recipe for me. It did add a very nice dimension to the sauce, so I don't think I would remove it, just reduce it to maybe 1/8 tsp. Otherwise, it was quite good and I will make it again with my modifications.
