- 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.
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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.
