This sauce was so sweet, no one in my family was able to eat it. Don't think this recipe is for us. Won't be trying it again.

I read the other reviews so decided to experiment a bit. Used my grocery store's meatloaf mix (1 lb ground round/1/2 lb ground pork sausage) so no veal. Then added pancetta which I browned along with the other meats. Then I split the batch for seasoning: 1.) 1/3rd as the recipe is given with sugar, cinnamon, oregano & thyme (everything in the correct proportions); 2.) 1/3rd with no sugar, no cinnamon but oregano & thyme per recipe; 3.) 1/3rd with no sugar, no cinnamon and substituted 1/2 T basil and a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg for the oregano & thyme. I didn't care for the 1/3 with the sugar & cinnamon, but loved both thirds without; probably preferrring the basil version, if I had to pick just one.

Needs some work. Maybe not add the cinnamon at all or add less? Not writing this off yet just need to tweak a little.

Based on other reviews, I omitted the sugar and replaced the cinnamon with nutmeg. Otherwise I followed recipe exactly. It was a big hit...tasted nice and rich, just the way I wanted it.
