21 Day Fix Baked Spaghetti

WInner, winner, baked spaghetti dinner!

21 day fix baked spaghetti

I scored HUGE the other night with the fam. I made a HEALTHY baked spaghetti! And duh, winning for me because it’s 21 Day Fix approved! 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue and either 1/2 purple or 1/2 green, however you count your tomato sauce. Personally, I count it however I need it to count for that day haha.

So here’s whatcha need…

1 bag of brown rice noodles

1 container of cottage cheese

20 oz ground turkey

1 jar of marinara/pasta sauce

1 cup of shredded cheese

1 onion (optional)

I started by boiling the noodles. You’ll want to drain them when they are just past al dente. You’ll be cooking them in the oven and you don’t want them to get too soggy.

Then I sautéed the onion and browned my turkey. Ive totally been debating which is best with my kids, they hate onions so  I never know if I should dice them super tiny so they can’t tell or leave them big enough that they can pick them out. Either way you do it should taste just fine though.

After the turkey browned, I added the spaghetti sauce. I also like to add a little water and a package of italian sauce dry mix for extra flavor.

Then I preheated the oven to 375 and started layering my ingredients in a 9×13 baking dish. Start with the pasta, add a layer of cottage cheese, then the meat sauce, then pasta, cottage cheese and sauce again. Top with shredded cheese and pop in the oven until the cheese on top is bubbly.

See all the pretty layers? Yeah me either, it kind of runs together.

So about 1/4 of this pan fed my whole family! I divided another 1/4 of it into lunches for me and I froze the other half for a quick dinner later on.

Boom! Dinner, meal prep and lazy future dinner! The whole family LOVED it and got super full! Definitely putting this in the dinner rotation!
