Full recipe in video below!
Meatball Ingredients: 1 lb 99% ground turkey
1 lb Italian Turkey Sausage
1 cup light shredded mozzarella
⅓ cup grated or shredded parmesan
1 shredded zucchini about 1 cup
2 teaspoons minced onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
Casserole Ingredients: 1 cup 0 point marinara
1 cup light shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray
Combine all the ingredients for the meatballs and mix thoroughly. Make about 24 meatballs and put them in the casserole dish.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Carefully drain the cooking liquid from the casserole dish.
Top with the sauce and cheese. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Optional: I broiled for 3-4 minutes at the end to toast the cheese. Watch it carefully if you put it under the broiler. The cheese can burn easily.
