Since starting my blog in November, the amount of groceries I buy every week have almost doubled and sometimes I am not using everything that I buy. This weekend, I decided to not buy any food, except for the necessities and work on cleaning out my pantry and freezer. I have a ton of frozen vegetables in the freezer and I thought this recipe was a great way to use them up. The recipe was fast, simple, healthy, and tasty. I believe the title of the dish means that this is a great way to blend vegetables that children usually don't care for into a delicious dish. I love vegetables, but this definitely a good recipe to try for those that do not.

2 tbsp. Dill, chopped, if using dried, cut amount in half
French fried onions
Brown beef in large saute pan with lid.
Mix in vegetables and pasta. Add broth. Mix, bring to a simmer, and cover. Let cook for about 15 minutes, or until pasta is cooked through.
Season with salt, pepper, and Dill. Serve with sour cream and onions.
