Healthy Hearty Italian Casserole

Make a cup of quinoa according to package directions. Brown a pound of lean ground turkey (93/7). Add two 8 oz. cans of low sodium tomato sauce, 1 TB of Italian spices, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp minced onion (use onion powder if you don't have), 1/2 tsp kosher salt and optional: 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes if you like heat. Mix the quinoa with 1/4 c (one blue container on 21 Day Fix plan) of your favorite shredded cheese and the meat sauce in a casserole dish. Add 3/4 c of cheese on top (three more blue containers).  Bake at 350 for 20 min with foil on top, then another 5-10 min without foil.  This makes 4 generous servings!!  If following the 21 Day Fix meal plan, each serving is 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue and 1/2 green.  Feel free to add more veggies in the meat sauce if you'd like!! Peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc. would be awesome in this. My family of picky eaters devoured this and I loved eating 1/4 of the pan!!!
