    List of Ingredients

    Meat Mixture:
    2 pounds ground beef
    1/4 pound green beans
    1 12 ounce zucchini, whole
    1 can tomato paste
    1 egg -- beaten
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    salt and pepper -- to taste

    1 1 1/2 pound head cauliflower, head
    1 tablespoon butter
    2/3 cup ricotta cheese
    salt and pepper -- to taste


    Preheat oven to 350.

    1. Brown ground beef in a pan until no pink remains.
    Drain cooked meat in a colander and return to pan.

    2. Chop zucchini and green beans into about 1/4-1/2 inch
    pieces. Add to ground beef mixture and season with salt, pepper and

    3. Stir in tomato paste. The mixture will be fairly dry.
    This is okay, as the vegetables will release some liquid during
    baking. The mixture should be only warm by now. Add the egg to the
    meat mixture. Pat mixture firmly into a 9x11 baking dish.

    4. Chop cauliflower and steam until quite tender. Remove
    from heat and mash with a potato masher. Add butter and mash
    until it's melted. Add ricotta cheese and continue to work with the masher until it is well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.

    5. Spread evenly on top of meat mixture. Place in oven and
    bake for about 30 minutes.
