- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)

Companion recipe: Chicken Stock
In a large saucepan or pasta pot bring 3 quarts water to a boil. Add pasta. Reduce heat slightly. Boil, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes for dried pasta or 1/2-2 minutes for fresh; or till al dente, stirring occasionally. (Or, cook according to package directions.) Immediately drain.
FOR THE MEAT SAUCE:
Peel, seed and chop fresh plum tomatoes, if using. In a large skillet cook ground chicken, turkey or beef, onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or till meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in fresh or undrained canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, vinegar, chili powder, allspice, cinnamon, salt and, if desired, red pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally.
Heat cannellini beans in a small saucepan; drain. Top hot cooked pasta with meat sauce, beans, green onions and cheddar or Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
