Ingredients

8 ounces whole wheat spaghetti

1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil

1 pound lean (85% or leaner) ground beef 

1 medium onion, diced 

2 teaspoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 15 ounce can no salt added crushed tomatoes

1 14 ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth

1 15 ounce can no salt added kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Before you begin, wash your hands, surfaces, tops of cans, and utensils.
  2. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. While pasta is boiling, begin step 3. Drain and set pasta aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, cocoa powder, chili powder, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring and breaking up lumps with a spoon, until the onion is beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.
