Stove-Top Zucchini and Ground Beef Skillet

Stove-Top Zucchini and Ground Beef Skillet created 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.

ingredients

directions

  • Brown ground beef with onion and bell pepper in a large skillet or pot with lid. Drain grease.
  • Add garlic and seasonings. Stir.
  • 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.
  • Remove lid and stir in spaghetti sauce. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Great served with cottage cheese or topped with parmesan!

    I chopped up two small zucchini, a tiny patty pan squash I had lying around, onion, 4 cloves of garlic and a bunch of sweet peppers. roughly a pound of ground beef. It was lean enough that I didn't drain. Lots of basil, salt, and pepper. Put it over penne noodles. I would use less noodles next time, maybe add a few macaroni noodles. Topped with a little Parmesan (not too much or it overwhelms the flavor). Yum!!! This is absolutely getting saved and being made again and again.

    Very simple to prepare and throw together for a quick weeknight meal. Served over whole wheat fettuccine noodles. Pretty mild on the flavors which was okay for us. Followed your instructions completely and used ground beef for the meat. Made for Zaar Stars tag game. Will make this again for sure.
