A quick and easy ground beef and squash casserole in a skillet recipe that cooks up in no time. It’s a great alternative to fast food takeout on busy nights.
I’m always looking for fast dishes to make my family for dinner. This is especially true in the warmer weather when I want to get outside after working all day.
This ground beef and squash skillet recipe is another easy dish that can be made quickly on a busy day. You can use whatever vegetables you like in this recipe. We still have yellow summer squash from the garden so that’s what I used.
Rather than beef, I used ground venison. My husband is an avid hunter and we make a lot of ground venison burger from the meat. Deer meat is also very lean and higher in cholesterol-reducing polyunsaturated fatty acids which makes it a heart-healthy choice.
I’ve got several busy weeknight meals that I rotate through. But, I’m always looking for new recipes to add. This hamburger squash casserole skillet dish will be on the list.
Other Easy Weeknight Meals
One of the other easy weeknight meals we have often is Filipino Adobo Chicken. My husband and kids love the taste of it and I an usually whip it up within 25 minutes.
If you aren’t into yellow squash, zucchini or eggplant would work well in this dish. What other vegetables from the garden would you use?
