Beefy Zucchini

Photo courtesy of my 11 year old daughter. Pretty good, eh?

Here’s another quick and easy zucchini dinner.  It is thick and hearty so it can be served as is or over rice or pasta.  A side salad would make a great addition. 


  • 1 small Onion, diced
  • 2 pound Ground Beef
  • 2 cans Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 3 Zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. In a heavy skillet, cook ground beef and onion until beef is done and onions are clear.
  2. Add tomatoes, zucchini, seasoning, salt and pepper and cook until zucchini is tender.

    This is a well rounded meal. You have enough heat to give that zucchini a life of its own.

    We are featuring this at Let’s Do Brunch, tomorrow. Come on over and please bring food for the hungry foodies.
