  1. Saute the chopped onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent. Add ground beef and saute over medium/low heat until brown. Add white wine and cook until it evaporates. Add tomato sauce, cinnamon stick, bayleaf and stir.

HELPFUL TIPS

Supermarkets sell ready to eat chestnuts already shelled and boiled (I like Galil brand). You may substitute dried cranberries for raisins. You may substitute another nut like walnuts or slivered almonds.
