Good ole fashioned Cincinnati Chili is made with fatty beef and more fatty cheese on top of pudgy pasta (you know the stuff we used to eat before they discovered whole wheat).
Use 99% fat-free turkey chili , high fiber whole wheat spaghetti (there are so many brands to choose from) and low fat cheddar cheese. I should mention again that although I prefer low-fat cheese to fat-free because it is much better tasting , it is sometimes hard to find so another option is to make your own blend of cheese mixing fat-free cheese with regular cheese. First thing to do is get your water boiling while you prepare. Just before the spaghetti is cooked heat up your chili with a teaspoon of cinnamon & then pour it on top of spaghetti (isn't that a song???). Cinnamon is the key to this recipe so you may need to adjust according to your taste. The trick is to have enough where you can taste it but can't recognize it as cinnamon. Lastly, gently grate your cheddar cheese or cheeses on top.
