Meatball Parmesan Casserole

Oh, you are so lucky to be reading this right now.  This is going to be a new, easy staple dish.  However, I would use my Turkey Meatball recipe next time.  But this is close enough.  Next time I'll use my mom's red sauce recipe, too.  It's so special!!!

Meatball Parmesan Casserole
from Shugary Sweets

1 lb ground turkey
1 egg
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
6 cranks fresh ground black pepper

1 jar (24 oz) spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup Parmesan, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 425F.  In a large bowl, mix together meatball ingredients until combined evenly.  Roll into 40 balls (or as many 1" balls that you get out of it).  Space evenly on prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Dial the oven down to 375F.  Pour half of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 2 qt baking dish.  Top with meatballs.  Pour remaining sauce over meatballs.  Top with shredded Parmesan and mozzarella.  Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.  Serve as is, on pasta, or on a sub sandwich!
