This is my absolute most favorite meal. My mom made this alot for us growing up, and since we're now grown and out of the house, it's a favorite Sunday dinner when we all get together. Sometimes I will also add prepared frozen meatballs to the sauce.

Too much garlic. Too much cinnamon. Yet not enough flavor.
