SLOPPY JOE CASSEROLE
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 1/2 ounces onion, chopped fine, 1 small
2 stalks celery, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 teaspoons granular Splenda
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 medium zucchini, 28 ounces total
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Brown the hamburger, onion, celery and garlic; drain the fat. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer, covered, about 10-20 minutes. Meanwhile, slice the zucchini in half lengthwise, then cut into 1/2" thick, half moons. Cook until tender, but not too soft; drain well. Mix the meat mixture, zucchini and cheese in a large casserole; add salt and pepper to taste. Microwave until hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally.

This is based on Dottie's Sloppy Joe recipe. Although this doesn't look pretty, it tastes good and is quite filling. I think it would be good as a filling for stuffed peppers.
