  1. If using Homemade Organic Freezer Beef Mix:  Pour 1/4 cup water into a deep saucepan with lid; Add the frozen beef mix, tomatoes (if using) and onions.  Simmer for 15 minutes over medium heat, covered.  Uncover; break up the frozen chunks into smaller pieces.  Add the garlic; Cover and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.  Proceed with step 4.
  2. Brown the beef in a saucepan until halfway done.
  3. Add the onions, tomatoes (if using) and garlic then saute with the ground beef for 6 to 7 minutes until the beef is brown and the onions are clear.
  4. Add the beef stock, vegetable stock, whey and milk; Stir well.
  5. Add the macaroni or cavatelli pasta, stir well
  6. Gently mix in the salt, cumin, paprika, chili pepper, cayenne (if using) and turmeric.
  7. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil then simmer uncovered until the noodles are al-dente, approximately 16- 22 minutes.
  8. Add the cheddar, ricotta and blue cheeses, allowing them to melt into the dish.
  9. Enjoy!
