Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 17 minutes
Stage: 1 | 2
8 oz lean ground beef

2 cups diced tomatoes (or canned diced tomatoes)
1 cup low sodium beef broth
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 TBSP olive oil
- Spray a medium saucepan with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring to break up any large pieces, until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes.
- Add the garlic, zucchini and tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
- Add the broth, Italian seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes.
