Easy Quinoa Italian Bake 2

I simplified an earlier version of this dish and honestly, I like it just as well, if not better. Less ingredients = more ease and less calories per serving.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 C of dry Quinoa cooked as directed on package (or 4 cups of riced cauliflower)

  • 1 Jar (2.5 cups of favorite marinara sauce. (I use Organic Marinara From Tuscany - Kirkland Brand from Costco)

  • 1 - 1.5 lbs of ground turkey.

  • ¼ chopped onion

  • ½ cup chopped sweet bell pepper

  • ¾ cup chopped mushrooms (I use baby bella)

  • 1 cup of fresh spinach

  • ½ cup of grated mozzarella cheese

  • 3-4 large sliced green or black olives



INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cook the quinoa (or cauliflower). Season with salt, pepper, dried onion, paprika, basil, oregano, garlic powder, cumin, all season

  • Brown the turkey and add the sauce, onion, bell pepper and mushrooms and season with salt, pepper, dried onion, paprika, basil, oregano, garlic powder, cumin, all season, turmeric. Simmer.

  • Layer the cooked quinoa in a baking dish spritzed lightly with nonstick spray or avocado oil.

  • Then layer the meat mixture, fresh spinach, grated cheese and olives.

  • Sprinkle more basil and oregano on top.

  • Bake in a preheated 350º oven for about 20 minutes.

ENJOY!
