      I gave this 5 stars because I think it's really excellent for such a simple dish. I took just a few minutes to prepare but was delicious and a nice change from the usual weekday meals.

      I agree with Paula. I will be making it again. Be sure to drain ricotta cheese. Also I had butcher grind up turkey legs without skin and bones. Taste just like lamb. In fact in the Mid East very common for restraunts to serve turkey thighs and legs and serve them for/as lamb! Try it. Not just ground but whole pieces with skin & bones removed, chopped into cubes

      This recipe lends itself to being split in half and that is what I did. It is very tasty. I may reduce the cinnamon next go as it was a little strong for our taste. The servings are generous. In fact, half the recipe will serve 6 with a side salad and vegetable.
