  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 large egg, beaten, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, crumble beef; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, onion and green pepper; cook and stir until crisp-tender, 4-5 minutes. Stir in beef, tomato puree, oregano, salt and pepper; heat through.
  2. Spread mashed potatoes in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with beef mixture; sprinkle with feta cheese.
