You can turn this into an Italian style dish by omitting the cinnamon and using diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano other than plain tomatoes and substitute mozzarella cheese for the feta.

I loved this! I made a few substitutions: combination of fresh tomatoes and leftover tomato paste for the canned tomatoes, some extra green beans and a full pound of ground beef. I also added a little more seasoning - some Greek seasoning I had on hand. Don't forget the feta! I plan to reheat leftovers tomorrow. Yum!
