Quinoa Caprese Casserole

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 2-quart square baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium saucepan combine the water, the quinoa, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Let stand for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff quinoa with a fork. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan combine marinara sauce and tomato paste. Stir over low heat until smooth. Stir in Parmesan cheese, cream, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Add cooked quinoa; mix gently. Using a rubber spatula, fold in 3/4 cup of the grape tomatoes, the shredded mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 cup of the basil. Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly.
  3. Top with fresh mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until heated through. Top with the remaining 3/4 cup grape tomatoes and the remaining 1/2 cup basil. If desired, serve with bread.
