Step 1

Heat olive oil in 12” skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook, breaking up with wooden spoon, until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer beef to plate; drain and discard but 1 tbsp. fat from pan; reheat pan over medium heat. Add ham; cook, stirring occasionally, until ham is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add tomato sauce, Sofrito, garlic, sugar, cumin, oregano, and Sazón to pan; cook until tomato sauce mixture begins to bubble. Stir in reserved beef, olives, ¼ cup cilantro and Adobo. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens and flavors come together, about 8 minutes more. Stir in remaining cilantro.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package instructions; strain pasta, reserving 1½ cups pasta water. Add spaghetti and reserved pasta water to skillet with sauce over medium-high heat. Using tongs, toss spaghetti with sauce until well combined and sauce coats spaghetti, about 3 minutes. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

Delicious, and so easy! Not too spicy but full of flavor. You can easily adapt this to vegetarian by omitting the meat, adding several chopped tomatoes, and doubling the amount of olives.
