- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 2 jalapeno peppers chopped
- 2 cloves garlic chopped
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and peppers. Cook them down about 6-7 minutes, until softened.
Add the garlic and stir. Cook another minute until fragrant.
Add the ground beef and break it apart with a spoon. Brown it on each side about 5 minutes.
Add red pepper, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir and cook another 5 minutes until the meat is mostly cooked through.
Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, ketchup and mustard. Stir and reduce heat. Simmer about 10 minutes while you cook your pasta.
Boil the pasta per the instructions on the box, about 10 minutes or so in salted water. Drain and add the noodles to the meat mixture.
Scoop it all into a baking dish and top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
