Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.
Combine broccoli, peppers, 1 tsp. olive oil, and garlic salt in provided tray.
Bake uncovered in hot oven, 10 minutes.

While vegetables bake, thoroughly combine ground beef, panko, half the ricotta (the rest is yours to do with as you please!), a pinch of pepper, and ¼ tsp. salt in a mixing bowl. Form into six equally-sized meatballs.
Carefully remove tray from oven. Push vegetables to one side. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil. Add meatballs to empty side of tray.
Bake the Dish
Bake uncovered in hot oven until vegetables are tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 20-25 minutes.
While meal bakes, combine marinara, chopped garlic, a pinch of salt, and 1 Tbsp. water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave until heated through, 1-2 minutes.
Carefully remove sauce from microwave and tray from oven. Top vegetables with cheese and meatballs with sauce. Bon appétit!
