A new twist for ground beef

Not only is this quick and easy but it smelled and tasted great! The ingredients give the dish a complex flavor and the leftovers were fought over the following day. Will make this again soon...

Nice change of pace from regular beef and noodles

My family enjoyed this recipe, however (sheepish grin) I forgot to add the milk, raisins and capers to the dish. It was very good though!

Pasta with Beef and Cinnamon

I never made a main dish with cinnamon. I was happy that both my husband and mother-inlaw (who was staying with us at the time) enjoyed this recipe. I will be making it again.
