Ingredients
  

  • 5.5 ounces extra lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cajun seasoning
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • 100 g spaghetti I weighed dry pasta
  • 1/2 cup pasta sauce I used a calorie reduced kind
  • 1/2 Tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 7.5 oz package pillsbury biscuits the ones in the 4 value packs, if you can not find these you can use regular sized pack and weigh out portions

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F, boil water on stove for your pasta and cook according to package.
  • In a small bowl mix your ground beef, panko, oregano, cajun and salt & pepper. Shape into 10 meatballs (each one weighing just over 1/2 an ounce) if you have more ground beef you can make up extra meatballs to freeze or use for something else..
  • Brown meatballs in a frying pan on medium for a few minutes then place in an oven safe sprayed dish and bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  • Spray a regular sized muffin pan. Using a rolling pin, roll out each biscuit and place in your muffin cups, each biscuit weighs approx 21g, so if using a larger pillsbury biscuit pack you can weigh out pieces.
  • Drain cooked pasta and then transfer to a bowl, mix in 1/2 cup reduced fat/calorie pasta sauce, feel free to add some diced vegetables, I choose not to.
  • Divide your spaghetti into the 10 biscuit cups, top with your parmesan cheese.
  • When meatballs are out of the oven place one on top of each pie, bake in oven (350F) for approx 16-18 minutes. The pasta will dry out a little on top but there's something about that little crunch that makes them extra yummy! Makes 10 pies at 3 smart points or 3 points plus each.
