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 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.
