While we did enjoy this, I am not sure that the cinnamon flavor "went" with this dish. But I usually am not too fond of savory and sweet mixed together. I cut the recipe in half and the fresh dill and parmesan were very nice. I also used 2 cloves of garlic. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 6, Zingo.

Wow is this pink! The sauce reminded me a lot of a horseradish cream we eat with beef sometimes. There is a lot of intense flavor in this dish. Interesting dish, if you are a beet lover you should give it a try!
