Absolutely loved this sauce! I used it to simmer Delicious Italian Meatballs Simmered in Sauce - Mommy's Best! by petlover, so I omitted the beef in the sauce. I, too, always add cinnamon to meat sauce, but have never tried ginger. I really enjoyed the added layer of flavor and I love how chunky the sauce is. It tastes very fresh! I did add some fresh herbs (thyme, sage, parsley and basil) and 1 t brown sugar because we like a sweet sauce, but otherwise made as directed. Fantastic with pet's meatballs! Thanks Abi Fae!

YumMee! What a great, fast way to make a tasty sauce that can be used in so many ways. Tonight we're going to have it with Better-than-storebought Mozzarella Sticks. You can taste the cinnamon, but it's not overpowering; just a nice hint of it. I used my stick blender to break down the tomatoes for a slightly thicker sauce that would stick to the cheese sticks better. Thanks, Abi Q, for this keeper!
