  • 2 cups low carb elbows cooked and drained, I prefer shiratake
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 14.5 ounces canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cups shredded cheese a Mexican blend is perfect


  • Cook ground beef with onion and garlic in large skillet over medium heat; pour off drippings. Add tomatoes, and the remaining seasoning; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Toss pasta with meat mixture. Spoon half of mixture into a 9×9 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese; top with remaining meat mixture. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheese on top. Cover with foil; bake in preheated 350 degrees F oven 25 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.


*UPDATE: I no longer use or recommend Dreamfields pasta as it is NOT low carb or gluten free!
