"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
1 lb Grass-Fed Ground Beef
3 Tbsp Ghee or Grass-Fed Butter
1 Yellow Onion halved and thinly sliced
4 Garlic Cloves peeled and thinly sliced
1 small Eggplant about 3 cups, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small Zucchini cut into small cubes

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a large skillet of medium heat, melt the ghee/butter. Add the ground beef, onion, and garlic and cook until the beef is browned and the onions have softened, about 8-10 minutes. Break up the beef with the back of a wooden spoon while cooking.
2. Add the eggplant and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes or until the eggplant has softened.
3. Stir in the zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes, salt, and basil and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the tomato sauce and add black pepper to taste.
4. Serve hot. If primal or you can tolerate dairy, I highly recommend adding a little grass-fed mozzarella and/or Parmesan on top as well.
