Bubble Up Pizza Casserole

Want a recipe that is also kid friendly?  Try the Weight Watcher Bubble Up Pizza Casserole.  This recipe gives you the taste of pizza for the fraction of the points.

For the recipe you will need:

1 pound 96% lean ground beef
2 teaspoons onion powder, or 1 onion, chopped
16 ounces tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
15 ounces refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit cut into quarters (this is 2 of the small tubes)
1 1/4 cups part skim milk mozzarella cheese, shredded (I used fat free shredded but I would recommend the part skim)
I also used cap mushrooms

Preheat oven to 350 F.  

Cut buttermilk biscuits into quarters.

In the skilled add the oil and cook onion until golden brown. 

Then added mushrooms (if you are using them).  Cook the mushrooms until soft. 

Then add ground beef.

Brown meat over medium high heat until browned, stirring to crumble.  Stir tomato sauce, basil, garlic and Italian seasoning (I seasoned my tomato sauce like I do when making spaghetti).

Add quartered biscuits; stir gently until biscuits are covered with sauce.

Spoon mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Bake for 25 minutes.

Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake an additional 10 minutes or until biscuits are done. 

Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Cut into 12 pieces.  One piece of the Bubble Up Pizza Casserole is equal to 5 points.
