  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced small

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 cups Ragu® Old World Style® Traditional Pasta Sauce

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers

  • 1 (16 ounce) can mild chili beans, undrained

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 ½ cups uncooked elbow macaroni

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  1. Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and beef. Stirring frequently, cook until meat is browned and crumbly, about 3 minutes. Drain excess fat.
