Fantastic recipe! I think the cinnamon is key to the authenticity of this dish, which is the only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars. I added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the meat mixture, and a sprinkle in the cream sauce. But the dish itself is easy, even though it's time-consuming, and everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again - it will be great for feeding large crowds. I did make the following changes, strictly out of necessity: I used skim milk, and light margarine instead of butter; I didn't have wine or paste so I for the paste + wine + broth, I used tomato sauce with vegetable boullion mixed in. I expect wine would be better but the dish was great even with my forced modifications. This recipe is a keeper!!
