Nana’s Main Meal Italian Squash

When Danny Zocco was a wrestler in high school, it was a challenge for him to maintain a low fighting weight for his weight category.  This dish is one of the main meals that Nana Zocco made for him because it is nourishing and has plenty of protein in it.

1 large onion
1 clove garlic
1 lb ground round
4 med sliced summer squash or zucchini
1/2 c leftover spaghetti sauce or 2 whole tomatoes or 1/2 can whole tomatoes.
1 tsp dried parsley or 1/4 c fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp oregano
3 eggs
1/4 c grated Italian cheese

Brown the onion and garlic in butter, add the ground round and brown, then add the rest of the ingredients except the squash, simmer 15 minutes then add the squash. Cook until squash is done, then mix in the egg whites, cover and allow to set.
Beat the egg yolks til they are whipped and add them and the cheese to the mixture. Turn off the heat and let set, at least 15 minutes.
Can be served over noodles, rice or spaghetti.
