It is snowing out and I don't want to go to the store! Anyone have any interesting ideas for a low carb dinner for 3 people with ground beef and green beans??? Thanks!

      Do you have any rice, pasta, or tomato sauce (or ingredients to make the sauce)? My grandmother used to make a delicious dish which consisted of sauteed onion, garlic, (you can throw in carrots or celery), brown the beef, add the green beans and tomato sauce and simmer until the beans are nice and tender. Super over rice, pretty good over pasta.

        Meatloaf and green beans? A tomato-vegetable soup with meatballs?

          Staying away from rice, pasta and potatoes b/c of low carb (see above - although I love them!). But, the meatloaf idea sounds great! I will substitute grated cheese for the bread crumbs. Thanks!

            Oh, so sorry! I totally missed that part. The meatloaf sounds awesome.
