Ingredients

  • 1 box Dreamfields Spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (or lean chicken or turkey breast)
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons cumin ground
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (more or less, to taste)
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tomatoes ripe, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • salt and pepper
  • Cabot Jalapeno Light Cheddar (or Sharp Light Cheddar)

Directions

  1. The first step for fast and efficient cooking time is to prepare ingredients ahead of time. This means dicing the tomatoes, dicing the onion, mincing the garlic, shredding the cheese and bringing a pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta.
  2. In a non-stick skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until hot. Add ground meat and onion; cook until meat is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. You may drain the fat to lower calories.
  3. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder, soy sauce and tomatoes; cook uncovered 10 minutes.
  4. Add tomato paste; continue cooking 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain and serve with taco meat sauce; top with shredded cheese. Enjoy!
