An easy traditional Greek style meat sauce for pasta. Perfect for busy weeknight suppers.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook the onion until soft, add the garlic, followed by the cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves, and dried oregano. Cook to release the flavors.
Fry until fully cooked and no pink shows at all in the meat (about 8 minutes). Add the tomato paste and stir into the meat.
Stir in the wine and allow to cook down.
Add the tomatoes, sugar, parsley, and fresh mint. Stir together, season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and serve topped with the sauce.
