Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, crumble beef or lamb into a 1 1/2-quart casserole; stir in onion.
Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power (HIGH) for 4 to 5 minutes or till meat is done and onion is tender, stirring once to break up meat.
Drain off fat.
Stir in the cooked elbow macaroni, tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
Spread the meat mixture in the bottom of a 6- or 6 1/2-cup non-metal ring mold.
For topping, in a 4-cup measure stir together skim milk, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power (HIGH) for 2 to 3 minutes or till thickened and bubbly, stirring every minute.

Sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
