This dish is a fresh, updated comfort food with a family-friendly, healthy twist!  It’s loaded with veggies, protein and good carbs! Tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, garlic and ground beef top creamy Parmesan noodles. If you want to make it vegetarian, omit the beef (you can replace with soy crumbles or sauté a cup of veggies).
