This Beef and Vegetable Casserole recipe will soon become a weeknight winner
Preheat the frying pan and put in the ground beef to brown it and release all the fat. Once the beef looks done take it out with a spoon and place it onto a paper towel to get rid of unwanted fat.
Wash the cauliflower and cut only florets; cut the butternut squash in half and peel, then shred. Shred the onion and mince the garlic. Peel tomatoes (or use canned) then crush, cube ham and you may use any ham that you have(smoked is usually the best). Put everything on the side and start with sauteing cauliflower florets in the oil that you cooked the beef in.
Cook cauliflower on medium high heat for 5 minutes, drop in shredded butternut squash, onion and garlic; Season and stir.
Add tomatoes, crush them some more in the pan and add cubed ham, season with salt and pepper if needed and sprinkle dry herbs on top. Let it cook for 10 minutes on medium high. Stir and set aside.
Return cooked ground beef in the frying pan and add the meat based tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce. Stir well and season if you need. Taste before seasoning.
Preheat the oven on 200C.
In the bowl mix oatmeal, french onions, mozzarella, and parmigiano cheese.
In the baking pan add first the veggie mixture, spread equally on all sides. Then add meat and sauce. Sprinkle oatmeal mixture over the top and bake.
Bake or 20 minutes or until all the cheese is melted completely and bubbling.
