Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/2-inch pieces (whole onion for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

Cook peppers

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer peppers to a plate. Set aside.

Cook beef and onions

Reheat the same pot over medium-high. When hot, add beef and onions to the dry pot. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat, if desired.

Cook cavatappi

Add Tex-Mex paste, garlic, marinara sauce, broth concentrate, 2 3/4 cups water (5 cups for 4 ppl) and 1/2 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot with beef and onions. Stir to combine, then bring to boil over high. Once boiling, stir in cavatappi and reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered, stirring often to prevent sticking to the pot, until cavatappi is tender, 12-16 min. (TIP: If pasta is sticking too much, add more water, 1/4 cup at a time. Scrape up any pieces that are stuck to the bottom of the pot.)

Finish cavatappi

Add peppers and spinach to the pot with cavatappi. Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Season with pepper, to taste.
