    dragonflydmc's Note:

    I was given this family favorite recipe almost 40 years ago. It's easy to prepare, cooks fairly quickly and the flavors of the ground beef, squash, tomatoes, onions & rice are beautiful together! Serve it with a simple salad and cornbread and you have a meal! And you don't even have to brown the ground beef!

      This was a good dish to use up a lot of zucchini and summer squash that I had on hand. It uses staple ingredients, was easy to make, and to my husband and I it tasted like comfort food. The flavors blend nicely, and the texture was similar to a stew. One skillet of this and you have a complete meal.

      I prepared this several times using my moms canned tomatoes. I used a 1 quart jar just dumping the full jar in. instead of the sauce and diced tomatoes the recipe calls for. I really enjoy this recipe and it is a good way for my sons to eat veggies.
