Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Lightly oil eight 8-ounce ramekins with canola oil or cooking spray and set on a baking tray.
  3. Prepare quinoa according to package using vegetable broth as the liquid. Once cooked, allow to cool slightly, fluff with a fork and set aside.
  4. While quinoa is cooking, dice the peppers, onions, mushrooms and olives.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce evenly throughout the bottoms of each ramekin, then mix the pizza seasoning into the remaining sauce and add into the cooked quinoa. Stir until well-combined.
  6. Spread about 1/4 cup quinoa/marinara mix evenly over the bottom of each ramekin. Layer into each ramekin a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, then vegetables, and repeat until all the vegetables are used, finishing each ramekin with a final top layer of mozzarella cheese.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.
