Rigatoni with Spiced Meat Sauce

INGREDIENTS


PREPARATION

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente; drain, and return to pot. Set aside.

2. While pasta is cooking, cook beef in a large saucepan over medium-high, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.

3. Add onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

4. Stir in tomato paste, cinnamon, and cayenne, and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

5. Add 1 1/2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.

6. Stir in vinegar, and season again with salt and pepper. Add sauce to pot with pasta, and toss to combine.
