Add wine to a pot and simmer until it is reduced by half.

Puree tomatoes in a blender. (You can use puree, but the flavor is better if you blend them yourself.) Add oregano, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, and chile flakes for heat if you are using them. Simmer for about 20 minutes to develop flavor.

Remove cinnamon stick. Add lamb mix. If it is thawed already, just stir it in. If it is frozen, add it to the pot, cover and allow it to defrost slowly on low heat.

When mix is heated through, stir in n. yeast or Parmesan and mint leaves.
