Ingredients

  • 1 lb. 96% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet white onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans Palmini linguini noodles drained (sometimes these are found in pouches, too)
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add ground beef and use a spatula to breakup into small pieces. Add onion, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt and black pepper. Brown for 8 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Stir in tomato paste, yellow mustard, milk, beef broth and coconut sugar. Bring to a low boil and cover with lid. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 5-7 minutes to cook onions and beef through, stirring occasionally. Stir in cheddar cheese until melted and thoroughly incorporated, about 2 minutes. Gently stir in Palmini noodles until coated with sauce and heated, 2 minutes.
  • Divide mixture between 4 black MPOF containers and garnish with chopped parsley. Cool for 10 minutes before covering. Refrigerate until serving.

Notes

*Palmini noodles can be swapped for zucchini noodles, rices cauliflower, or even regular pasta, if desired. These swaps will effect the nutrition count.
