Total Basset Case: Recipe : Sassy Zucchini

Recipe : Sassy Zucchini

I really wish I had come up with the name for this recipe but sadly I did not.
Recently we were at Mister's parents house and his mama whipped this up for our Sunday lunch.  Other than the deliciousness of this recipe, I love that it is an old family recipe.
Don't you just love that?
I have some of my Mamaw's old recipes and books with her notes and I really treasure those quite a bit.  

After Mister and I both enjoyed this at his Mama's house, I knew it needed to be on our menu soon.
As with generally any recipe I make, I tweaked our version just a little.

I left out the spaghetti and mushroom sauce and added a can of beans for some extra protein, garlic, and Italian seasoning.
 I will say we used ground beef and it was delicious, I had originally planned on ground turkey but I think the beef is tastier.  Either one would work though.  
The really high point of this recipe (sans the deliciousness!!) is that it makes a TON.
We had enough to have dinner one night, leftovers 2 additional times and I took the rest for lunch one day. 
This is perfect for a crowd.  It makes A LOT, is super easy, yummy, full of protein and filling.
Those are all winners for me.
This will definitely be on repeat on our menu.

I love this! I have new tofu crumbles (I know you're cringing) that are absolutely delicious and I'm totally making this...when I have a kitchen again.
