For the Meat Sauce

  1. In a large pot, preferably a Dutch Oven, add the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the ground beef and lamb and continue to cook for 10 minutes, crumbling with a spoon, until no longer pink.
  2. Drain any excess liquid and add the wine. Cook for 2-3 minutes until almost all of the wine has absorbed.
  3. Add the garlic, cinnamon, oregano, thyme, and cayenne, and allow to cook 5 minutes to incorporate the flavors.
