I have added cinnamon to this ragout, which creates an unforgettable flavour. The meatballs are moist, and the vegetables are simmered in a mouthwatering sauce to perfection. When you are craving comfort food on a light note, this ragout will satisfy that craving, and it can be made in less than 45 minutes
