I made this for dinner tonight and it was SO good!
I used a whole squash and a pound of beef, then approx. doubled the rest of the ingredients.
Ended up short on time so I put the cooked beef and the rest of it into the microwave for about 15 minutes until the squash was tender.
Topping it with some dried mint is perfect! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes!!
