Beef, Squash, and Couscous Skillet

Dinner doesn’t get much simpler or tastier than this! If you’ve got squash and tomatoes from the garden, fresh work well, but if you don’t, canned and frozen are just as good.

  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups butternut squash, cubed

  • 1½ tsp. oregano
  • ¾ tsp. salt-free lemon pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil

  1. Cook couscous according to package directions.
  2. Cook ground beef with onion and garlic in large skillet over medium heat until beef is browned (8-10 minutes).
  3. Stir in squash, tomatoes, water, oregano, lemon pepper, and salt. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until squash is tender (8-10 minutes).
