Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Adapted from a Mr. Food recipe. I usually use my homemade spaghetti sauce but the store bought will do in a pinch. Simple seasonings--not flashy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns


  1. In a big non-stick skillet, add the ground beef, zucchini, and onion.
  2. Cook over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes or until the beef is browned and the zucchini is tender.
  3. Change heat to medium-low; add in the tomato and spaghetti sauce; stir and cook 4-5 minutes or until heated.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spoon mixture over buns and serve immediately.
