Food Storage Recipe: Squash and Beef Casserole

This little casserole recipe is so easy and is made from 100% food storage ingredients and veggies from our garden.  I have to admit that I love a great casserole.  Even with the extreme heat we have had I still want a nice hot meal for dinner.  The time and effort that it takes to make this casserole are minimal.  I was also able to use the leftovers in my meal the next day.  We combined the casserole with a little instant rice and dinner was done!

I started off by washing and slicing my squash and zucchini into 1/4″ slices.

I then tossed them in olive oil until they were evenly coated and layered them into a greased 9″ x 11″ glass dish. I topped the veggies with a little seasoning (Paula Deen’s House Seasoning)  If you have not tried this seasoning you need to give it a go.  We love using this seasoning and mixing it up in a shaker makes it easy to spice up a large dish or a small meal for one.

After baking the veggies layer them with ground beef, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.  So delicious.
