"I needed a vegetarian dish tonight and came up with this. It's quick, simple and, I think, tasty. Since DD enjoyed it I'm posting it here so I don't forget how I made it. You could easily substitute ground beef or ground chicken for the veggie ground round. The inspiration for this recipe was Gerry's recipe#1005. It's a simple matter to add more seasonings if you prefer. Thanks Gerry."

I am not a vegetarian but I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and found it to be a very satisfying meal. I cut the recipe in half used whole wheat rotini. For the vegggies I used asparagus, cauliflour, broccoli, onion and peppers.I did not pre steam them as we like our veggies under cooked - baked in 350 oven for 40 minutes. Yves ground round was Italian flavour - next time I will use Mexican. Thanks Dreamer - this recipe will be saved and made again
