      This dish was great. Easy to make & good on points even though I chose to use non-fat-free ingredients (can't handle the processing, extra sodium & fillers). I loved the roasted tomatoes/zucchini & the cottage cheese mixture on top was very yummy. I added some italian sausage to the beef & did the italian version with parm cheese & basil. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

      As I am always looking for great light recipes - I had to try this! It was a hit at home - the taste of the roasted zucchinis and tomatoes - Mmmm! Next time I will add some grilled red peppers also! It was a great recipe to prepare ahead for busy weeknight suppers!
