Ingredients

  • 3 Cups cooked Quinoa
  • 26 oz. Hunts Garlic and Herb Pasta Sauce (or your favorite Gluten-Free Pasta Sauce)
  • 1 1/2 Cups finely shredded Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Basil dry
  • 1 Tablespoon Parsley dry
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Salt
  • 3/4 Cup cooked Mild Italian Sausage
  • 2 Vine Ripe Tomatoes sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Basil chopped
  • 1 1/2 Cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole pan.
  • Combine quinoa, pasta sauce, shredded carrots, and seasonings and mix until fully incorporated. (I usually mix it all together right in the sauce pan I used to cook the quinoa.)
  • Pour one-third of the quinoa mixture into the greased pan. Use the back of your mixing spoon to level out the mixture.
  • Sprinkle cooked sausage and half of the cheese evenly along the mixture. Pour remaining mixture over the sausage and cheese and smooth out with the back of your spoon.
  • Top with sliced tomatoes and fresh basil and sprinkle the top with remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Broil for 2 minutes longer or until cheese is lightly brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
