Stove-Top Zucchini and Ground Beef Skillet

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Engrossed

This is my version of an easy, healthy, one pot meal. It works great with a head of chopped cabbage also. I serve it with cottage cheese.

I liked the combination. Quick and easy. I just cut the zucchini in smaller pieces, and used salsa instead of pasta sauce. I will surely make it again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef with onion and bell pepper in a large skillet or pot with lid. Drain grease.
  2. Add garlic and seasonings. Stir.
  3. Add zucchini and stir. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat for approximately 15 minutes until the zucchini is crisp tender (I don't add any water, the zucchini has enough). Stir about every 5 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and stir in spaghetti sauce. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Great served with cottage cheese or topped with parmesan!
