This is a recipe I got from my friend, Cindy. She has a son with multiple food allergies and this recipe came from a book called Sophie-Safe Cooking: A Collection of Family Friendly Recipes that are Free of Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, and Shellfish. While we just found out last week that our youngest is allergic to dairy and peanuts, I didn't make this because of that. She's a baby and isn't eating real food yet. But I love zucchini and couldn't wait to try this recipe. I changed it just a little bit and renamed it.

Beefy Zucchini Sauté

½ onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
3 zucchini, sliced or diced
1 tsp salt
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
4 cups rice, cooked

Sauté onion and ground beef until beef is browned. Add zucchini and salt. Cover and cook until zucchini are soft.

Mix in tomato sauce and heat through. Serve over rice.

Makes 4 servings.

Pretty tasty. Makes a simple, one-bowl supper for a busy weeknight.

The original recipe called for 5 zucchini, but I thought that sounded like a lot, so I only used 3. And, probably because of that, I changed the servings from 6 to 4. It also called for allspice, but I didn't have any, so I just left that out. I also decreased the amount of tomato sauce from 15 oz. to 8.

This was really good served over rice, but I think it would also be good served over mashed potatoes.
