1 can (16 oz) whole tomatoes (undrained and chopped)
¼ tsp pepper
1/8 tsp dried basil
Cook hamburger in large ovenproof skillet until browned. Drain well and pay meal dry with paper towel. Wipe skillet with paper towel. Layer beef, carrots, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, and onion in skillet. Sprinkle with pepper and basil. Cover with lid and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
You get some good fiber out of this one. Plenty of vegetables to offer variety and you can add or subtract the amounts of certain veggies to make up the recipe. Use the leanest hamburger available at your grocers. When you drain your meat, use hot or boiling water to rinse the meat to help remove the fat that cooking extracted. Carb content is about 1 serving (15 g) and there are about 150 calories in one serving of ½-3/4 cup. Throw together and leave in oven kind of dinner for the nights you do not feel like watching the pot boil.
