Ingredients

  • 20 ounces zucchini (about 2 large) ends sliced off and discarded
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 15 ounces can tomato sauce or puree
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion (about 1 small)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne

Instructions

  1. Making the meat sauce:
  2. Heat a high-sided pan over medium heat until hot. Add olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add ground beef to the pan, breaking it apart as it cooks. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, stirring it in. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then gradually reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Simmer for about 5 minutes to thicken the sauce, stirring occasionally.
