Confetti Beef Skillet

*1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef (I used 1 pound)
*1 medium yellow onion, chopped
*1 env. italian dressing Mix
*1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
*1 can (14-1/2 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
*1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen corn, thawed
*1 cup water
*1-1/4 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
*1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown meat in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in dressing mix. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add zucchini, tomatoes and corn; mix lightly. Cover; simmer 5 minutes.

Stir in water. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Stir in rice; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.

Sprinkle with cheese; cover. Let stand 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I found this on kraftfoods.com It had a really good flavor to it. However--if you dont like hamburger (like me) its almost impossible to pick around it in this recipe. Next time I will make meatballs to put in this because I really like how the veggies and tiny rice pieces (that I could sort out) tasted!! :)

I made this tonight and it turned out great! I didn't have any zucchini in the house, so I just threw in some green beans instead. I think it worked out pretty good. Thanks for the recipe!

This was great recipe. I like Stephanie didn't have any zucchini on hand so I substituted with brocoli. This was super easy clean up too and I loved that!
