1/2 pound ground beef
1 cup frozen, chopped onions (or one small onion, chopped)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 zucchini or green pepper, diced
1/2 or 1/4 jar of marinara sauce (I like the ones loaded with vegetables such as Ragu Chunky Garden style Combination which has mushrooms, diced tomatoes, green peppers, onions, carrots, and zucchini).
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
8 oz. can of tomato sauce
small can of tomato paste
15 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1. Brown the ground beef and add onions and garlic. Drain well.
2. While the beef is cooking, chop the green vegetable of choice. Add to the beef mixture. Cook until the vegetable is softened.
3. Add the seasoning, sauce, paste and tomatoes.
4. Simmer for 30 minutes.
5. Serve over your favourite pasta and add some parmesan cheese on top.
