Tips

Freezes well for later. If you don't roast the zucchini and tomatoes long enough, the casserole will turn out alittle watery at the bottom.


Directions

Preheat oven to 500║F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread tomatoes and zucchini over sheet. Roast vegetables for 12 to 17 minutes.
Meanhwile, in a large, nonstick skillet, sautÚ beef until beef is browned. Drain the grease. Stir in tomato sauce and Rotel and bring to a simmer.
Spread beef mixture in a large, shallow baking dish (3 quart or 9 X 13-inches) and top with roasted vegetables. Reduce oven temperature to 350║F.
Whisk together cottage cheese, egg yolk, cheese, herbs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Spoon over roasted vegetables and smooth with a rubber spatula.
Bake until very hot and bubbling around edges, about 35 minutes. Cut into six equal pieces and serve immediately. (Note: If preparing casserole in advance and freezing it, make sure to thaw it completely in the refrigerator before baking it. Increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes.)
