Yield 8
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 24 ounces Rao’s Marinara
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 3 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

Instructions

  1. Add the ground beef, onion, and garlic to a dutch oven and brown over medium heat, breaking the meat up as it cooks. When beef is cooked through, drain the fat and return the meat to the pan.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the zucchini is as soft as you'd like.
  3. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
  4. Add additional salt if desired and top with cheese, if desired.

Notes

Feel free to use any brand of low sugar marinara that you prefer. Rao's is my preferred brand.
