Cheesy Meatball Sub

6 Market Pantry Turkey Meatballs (Sold at Target) - 1/2 Lean
1 oz Mozzarella & Parmesan Shredded Cheese - 1/4 Lean
2 Romaine Lettuce Heart Leaves - 1/2 Green
1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce - 1/2 Green
1/4 cup Rao's Homemade - Arrabbiata Fra Diavolo Sauce (Sold at Target) - 2 condiments

Heat 6 meatballs in a microwave safe container for 1 minute 30 seconds. Add tomato sauce and heat for another 30 seconds - 1 minute. Lay 2 Romaine lettuce hearts on a plate.  Add 1/4 cup of shredded iceberg lettuce to each Romaine leaf.  Top each leaf with 3 meatballs and sauce.  Top with cheese.  Enjoy!

The Medifast Lean & Green exchange for this recipe is:
3/4 Lean, 1 Green, 2 Condiments
**Since this isn't a complete Lean & Green meal, you could enjoy a 2 cup lettuce salad with 1.5 oz of chicken breast, as an example.

That looks fantastic and filling! Thanks, I've just re-committed to Medifast, it works if I do too, this recipe will make it easier to stay on play *this* day!

I heard target brand meatballs changed and are no longer good for lean and green. Is there a different brand that can be used these days?
