Meatball Lasagna

Really looking forward to trying some new recipes & this meatball lasagna looks delicious!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 Market Pantry (Target Brand) turkey meatballs
  • 1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) 2% Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 cups (12.68 oz) (cooked weight) yellow squash or zucchini or spaghetti squash (10.92 oz cooked for spaghetti squash)
  • 1 cup (8.46 oz) canned Italian diced tomatoes (less than 5 g of carbs per 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried ground basil
  • 6 tsp grated parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Layer zucchini or squash slices along the bottom of a medium sized casserole dish.
  3. Spread ricotta cheese over the squash.
  4. Sprinkle garlic salt and basil over the ricotta cheese and squash slices.
  5. Combine diced tomatoes with meatball pieces in a small bowl. Pour over ricotta cheese.
  6. Sprinkle mozzarella over meatballs and then top with grated parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  8. There will be some water or liquid from the squash or ricotta. This is normal. I just drain it from the casserole dish by tipping the dish slightly to the side while making sure the lasagna doesn’t pour out as well.
  9. Enjoy!
