DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot with olive oil, turn heat to medium high.
  • Add the onion, garlic, and parsley and sauté till onion turns translucent. Be careful not to burn. Add a touch of salt. Add tomato paste, although really not necessary. Let it sauté while stirring.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and let them release some juice.
  • Now add the ground meat, and press it down with a fork gently so that huge cubes or balls of meat don't form. Mix. Season with a bit more salt and pepper.
  • Add some water, just barely covering the meat.
  • Add the cloves, cinnamon, tomato sauce and stir.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce to low heat. Cover and simmer for an hour and a half or until liquid is gone.
  • Serve with thin spaghetti and top with parmigiano-reggiano, grated kefalotiri or kefalograviera.
