This Greek Pasta Beef Casserole is an excellent comfort food that’s packed with nutritious and delicious ingredients sure to please the entire family.
My son starts kindergarten TODAY! On one hand the last 5 years have flown by, but on the other hand the years have dragged on…if you’re a mom I’m sure you know what I mean. One of my friends recently told me a quote that resonated quite well with me. “The days are long but the years are short” (Gretchen Rubin). It’s that the truth!? And believe me I am reminded of that practically daily when I go to the store with my 3 kids. Besides comments like “wow, you have your hands full!” I often hear “cherish your young kids because they grow up so quickly.” Well making quick meals like this casserole help me to do just that. Spending less time in the kitchen is a frequent goal of mine so I can have more time to do the things I love to do like exercise, and spend time with my family.
Now that my son has started kindergarten and my daughter is in preschool, I’m looking for dinner ideas that are quick, nutritious and leave my family feeling satisfied. That’s when I came up with this Greek Pasta Beef Casserole. It takes only 15 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook. This recipe also leaves me with leftovers which is always a bonus since it’s an easy lunch for all of us for the following few days.
This recipe contains whole grains from the pasta and tons of protein to help keep you feeling satisfied longer. Did you know that eating protein like beef evenly throughout the day helps you manage your weight?
