Title:

Low Carb Crustless Meatball Calzone Casserole

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Beef
Cooking Method: Baked
Diet: Low-carb
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients
  • 8 tbs - Pizza Sauce (I use walmart brand - it's the lowest carb I've found!)
  • 16 individual - frozen italian meatballs ( I use Mama Rosa's brand)
  • to taste - garlic powder
  • to taste - italian seasoning
  • 1 carton - part skim ricotta cheese
Directions

I mix the ricotta cheese with the shredded cheese, and add seasonings to taste.  Put the cheese mixture into a casserole dish - I use a 9x12 one that is greased with Pam.  Then I evenly place the meatballs - usually 4 rows of 4. 
I sprinkle with a little parmesan, and bake it for 30 minutes (or til browned and bubbly) at 350 degrees.
It makes four servings, and I serve each with two tablespoons of the pizza sauce.

It is almost as good as the real thing - minus the bloated feeling I always had after eating the crust!!
