“We don't really have a name for this all-in-one meal other than, "That hamburger stuff. The one with the squash and spinach." But its a family favorite over bowties, medium shells, rotini, or any other chunky pasta. It goes together quickly and holds well on those busy days when people aren't able to eat at the same time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef and onion in the olive oil, seasoning with garlic and oregano to taste.
  2. Add vegetables and cook until hot.
  3. Add spaghetti sauce. Simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Add ricotta, stirring in enough to blend it but not so much that you don't still have those delicious, cheesy lumps. Cover and let stand 5-10 minutes.
  5. Serve over pasta, passing Parmesan at the table if desired.
  6. Note -- This should work well for OAMC if the meat/onion/seasoning mix is prepared then the bags of meat, squash, spinach, and spaghetti sauce are taped together for easy assembly.
