Penne and Meatball Casserole

Published on January 16, 2020

  • cooking spray

  • ¾ cup uncooked whole wheat penne pasta

  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 2 tablespoons egg substitute

  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • ⅛ teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 dash salt

  • 1 dash garlic powder

  • ¼ pound lean ground turkey

  • ¾ cup meatless spaghetti sauce

  • ¼ cup low-fat (2%) cottage cheese

  • ¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a baking sheet and a 1-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, egg substitute, Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, and garlic powder in a bowl. Crumble turkey on top and mix well. Shape mixture into 1/2-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the centers, 9 to 11 minutes. Drain off excess grease.

  5. Drain penne. Combine baked meatballs with spaghetti sauce in a bowl. Spoon 1/2 the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with 1/2 of the cooked penne, cottage cheese, and mozzarella cheese, plus 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers. Cover with a glass lid or aluminum foil.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.
