- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add the onions and red bell peppers to the same skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the onions are soft. If it is necessary, add a little bit of olive oil to help sauté the veggies.
Add the zucchini and asparagus, and cook for 3-5 minutes. It depends on how tender you prefer your veggies.
Return the ground beef to the skillet, and mix everything together.
Add the Dijon, tomato passata, oregano, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper to taste. Cook for 1-2 minutes more.
Garnish with fresh parsley and feta cheese.
