Absolutely loved this sauce! I used it to simmer Recipe #287769 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!
