Stir-Fry and Zucchini Noodles

If you are a follower of my facebook page, you know I tried something new last night. It was something that I thought about for awhile and was hoping it tasted as good as I imagined.... I was wrong. It was terrible... well, the boys ate it. Hubby and I just could not... Hubby said it looked amazing but tasted just ok. I have not had a complete fail in awhile so I guess it was bound to happen! Ha! 

Thankfully - I have this delicious meal that we had before we left on vacation and have not blogged about! Lucky you --- you still get a recipe today even when such a FLOP yesterday! :) 

I love throw together meals with meat and vegetables! I love stir-fry! I love chili! I love anything you can make with loads of vegetables and meat! 
 This time I browned ground beef with onion. Added Broccoli, carrots, red bell pepper, 1/2 can diced tomatoes, hand full of cherry tomatoes and seasonings.

 I love using zucchini as noodles! Just an extra way to include another vegetable!!!! :)

Topped the noodles with meat mixture!

Full of flavor and super quick! The most time consuming part was using the madeline for my zucchini noodles. It was a real quick meal!

The Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion
1 cup broccoli
1/2 can of diced tomatoes
10 + baby carrots diced
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 cup chicken broth
Trader Joe's 21 seasoning salute
garlic powder

The Directions:
Brown ground beef and onion. Seasoning meat after draining the fat with nutmeg and garlic powder. Add broccoli and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Cook on Medium heat. After 5 - 10 minutes add carrots, tomatoes, peppers, diced tomatoes and the rest of the seasoning.

In a boiling pot of water add the zucchini for 2 - 5 minutes. Strain water.

Top the zucchini noodles with the meat and vegetable mixture.
