Cook the beef
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the shallots and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the ground beef*; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until browned and cooked through.

Cook the pasta
While the beef cooks, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 4 to 6 minutes or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup of the cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent from sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Finish & serve
Add the cooked pasta, demi-glace and ½ the Parmesan to the pan. Gradually add the reserved cooking water until your desired consistency is reached; mix thoroughly to combine. Let simmer, 1 to 2 minutes, until the pasta is heated through; season with S&P to taste. Divide the finished pasta between your plates and garnish with the remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
