Weight Watchers Meatball Casserole – Low Carb Recipe

Servings: 6

Meatball Ingredients:

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef (93/7 or leaner)
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup crushed pork rinds (as a low-carb substitute for breading)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning blend

Casserole Ingredients:

  • 2 cups low-sugar, low-fat red sauce (look for Weight Watchers-friendly options)
  • 2 cups reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor, crush the pork rinds into fine crumbs.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the meatball ingredients, including the lean ground beef, lean ground turkey or chicken, part-skim mozzarella, grated Parmesan, crushed pork rinds, eggs, onion powder, minced garlic, and Italian seasoning. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients.
  4. Use a small cookie scoop or your hands to form small meatballs of uniform size.
  5. Place the meatballs in the prepared casserole dish and bake them in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until they are fully cooked and have browned.
  6. Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the oven and drain any excess grease if necessary.
  7. Top the meatballs with the low-sugar, low-fat red sauce, and sprinkle the reduced-fat mozzarella cheese on top.
  8. Return the casserole dish to the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is bubbly.
  9. Garnish the casserole with fresh basil before serving.
  10. Serve the Weight Watchers-friendly Meatball Casserole with a side salad or over zucchini noodles (zoodles) for a low-carb and low-point meal.

Make sure to adjust the portion sizes and ingredients according to your specific Weight Watchers plan. This recipe offers a tasty, low-carb alternative to the keto version while keeping it Weight Watchers-friendly.
