    Thanks for your email. Sorry some of the ingredients did not save correctly. I have updated wth your questions-

    1. Kefalogaveria is correct cheese. Use this instead of cheddar.

    2. Add cinnamon prior to cooking  bolognese. See above.

    3. Yes add butter after you grate cheese.

    Happy cooking. Enjoy!!

    This looks very yum. just a few questions though...Kefalogaveria Cheese is not listed in ingredients...do you just add some on top of pasta? The cinnamon quill listed in ingredients - when do you put this in? The butter in your bechamel also doesn't appear in method. I'd suggest putting it in after grating cheese?
