Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the beef, onion, garlic, celery, and carrots in the hot oil until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. While cooking, season with cinnamon, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and 1/2 of the Cheddar cheese. Bring to a gentle boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni and spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta until not quite cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  4. Combine the drained pasta and the ground beef mixture in a large casserole dish. Top with the remaining Cheddar cheese. Cover the dish. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is completely melted, about 20 minutes.

Just way too much cinnamon taste for me... (or my family) Good base, but the cinnamon over-powered everything else.

I would recommend leaving out the cinnamon. We liked it other than that. Our family likes spicy food, I do reccomend adding some chili powder, crushed red peppers, or anything with a kick to it.

Best Bresslin' Pasta Casserole Haiku: "Cinnamon no-no. I'm convinced it was 'teaspoons.' Otherwise would fail." So I made this as written, except there's no chance that it was supposed to call for that much cinnamon, so I reduced it to 1/2 tsp., and honestly, was OK w/ it. I did; however, find myself irritated w/ the spaghetti noodle inclusion and would've preferred all elbows instead. Fairly tasty casserole, but probably not one that I'd make again.
