15 Min

Who says Sloppy Joes are only for kids? We've lightened up the typical kid's meal with fresh vegetables and added a bit of spice for good measure. Your kids will still like it, and so will you!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded
  • 2 cups light spaghetti sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 whole wheat, sandwich thins, split

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, onion, and  zucchini over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink and zucchini is tender.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, chili powder, and black pepper. Cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes, or until heated through.
  3. Spoon over bottom halves of sandwich thins, cover with tops, and serve immediately.
