This is a wonderful recipe from Solo Suppers (Joyce Goldstein). The tomato sauce is outstanding paired with lamb. She recommends serving this with roasted potatoes and eggplant.

Easy recipe! Loved the flavor of this sauce. I didn't need to add any honey at the end. I had four lamb steaks (about the size of the palm of my hand each) and have plenty of sauce left over, even after drizzling it over the lamb and onto the plates. I will probably use it over regular steak tomorrow. Thanks for this keeper!

Delicious! The cinnamon in this recipe really adds to the flavour. Sauce is beautiful...almost BBQ flavour. The feta on top melts wonderfully and adds a sharp zing at the end. Looks great plated, tastes great and simple to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe.
