Are you looking for a casserole that is healthy and easy to make? Then this is the recipe youíve been looking for.

Letís face it, eating healthy seems to be too much bother these days when our everyday lives are so busy. I love casseroles, but I usually donít like the fact that it takes so long to make a casserole that isnít loaded with fat but is still flavorful and something my family will eat. This Beef and Vegetable Skillet Casserole is just what I have been looking for. Itís low in calories and fat but big on taste. Enjoy!
