To your chilli beef sauce, add light cream cheese, creme fraiche or soured cream and 1-2 ladles of pasta water to create a sauce and continue to simmer for 5 mins. Once spaghetti is ready, add along with cheddar-mozzarella mix and combine once more, using additional pasta water to loosen sauce if needed.
