This dish can be made with ground beef. I make it with vegetarian beef-like crumbles. I prefer Quorn Grounds, but Morningstar Farms and several others make a substitute for ground beef that will work as well. This is a perfect dish to make for pot luck, a small square is quite filling. I hope you enjoy it.
