In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add
ground beef, onion, and red pepper; cook until browned, approximately 4 to 5
minutes. Stir in chile powder, cocoa, cumin, cinnamon, and salt; cook until
fragrant, approximately 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, black beans, and beef
broth; reduce heat to low and let simmer until the liquid is reduced by 1/2.
Remove from heat and pour the tomato mixture over
the cooked pasta (toss to coat thoroughly).
Transfer onto individual serving plates.
