    3KillerBs's Note:

    We don't really have a name for this all-in-one meal other than, "That hamburger stuff. The one with the squash and spinach." But its a family favorite over bowties, medium shells, rotini, or any other chunky pasta. It goes together quickly and holds well on those busy days when people aren't able to eat at the same time.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown ground beef and onion in the olive oil, seasoning with garlic and oregano to taste.
    2. 2
      Add vegetables and cook until hot.
    3. 3
      Add spaghetti sauce. Simmer 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add ricotta, stirring in enough to blend it but not so much that you don't still have those delicious, cheesy lumps. Cover and let stand 5-10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Serve over pasta, passing Parmesan at the table if desired.
    6. 6
      Note -- This should work well for OAMC if the meat/onion/seasoning mix is prepared then the bags of meat, squash, spinach, and spaghetti sauce are taped together for easy assembly.

      I was caught up in the name for this easy to make one dish meal and had to give it a try! Made as posted using the Classico spaghetti sauce and the bow ties. I too used fresh squash but used frozen spinach - both vegetables we are fond of. Next time and there will be a next time I will add a green pepper that the family like in hamburger stuff. Thank you for sharing a new to us recipe for those busy days - and adding variety to our lunch menu.

      My family found this recipe to be rather bland. Next time I will add more garlic, some fresh basil, and omit the ricotta cheese.

      Wow! This was incredible!! I couldn't find frozen yellow (crookneck) squash so I just used fresh but it was fine that way. Also, instead of 1 quart of spaghetti sauce, I only used one jar of Classico sauce & 1 can of diced italian-style tomatoes which just added some extra flavor. Soooo good! My kids ate it up & I like that they got in some very important veggies through this recipe. Oh, my DH is not crazy about Ricotta cheese so I used a lot less than the recipe called for but it added a very nice richness! Thank you for this recipe & I will make this often!
