Mixed Veggie Naghetti
Over medium heat, melt oil in a large saute pan. Add onions and garlic, sauteeing for 2-3 minutes. Add ground beef and stir, breaking up the meat and cooking it evenly. Add sauce, turning heat to low and allowing the mixture to simmer.
While the sauce cooks, add a small quantity of water to another saute pan (~1/4 cup). Bring the heat to medium-high and when the water starts to boil, add frozen vegetables. Cover with a lid and allow vegetables to steam for ~5-10 minutes or completely defrosted and the vegetables are heated through. Drain off any excess water.
Plate 1/3 of the vegetables and top with meat sauce. Top with fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese if desired.
