  1. Spray a 9”x13” casserole pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add the oil to a large skillet and place it over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, mushrooms, and garlic and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour into the prepared casserole dish.
  3. Add the ground beef to the skillet and brown for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute.
