1. Cook the pasta according to package directions omitting the salt, if desired.
2. Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until it begins to brown, 4-5 minutes. Add the white onion, garlic, and jalapeho; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add the cumin and cinnamon; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the cilantro.
