Farmer’s Market Casserole

My visit to my local Farmer’s Market was the inspiration for this recipe. My CSA  from Your Hometown Harvests box that I pick up there had some chard, broccoli, red onions, red sweet pepper and zucchini which is the veg part of the casserole. I added a pound of local grass-fed lean beef and I sampled some wonderful raw milk Diablo Cheddar from Full Circle Creamery which made a wonderful garnish for the top. This casserole is low carb, heart-healthy, diabetic friendly and gluten-free.
