Italian Ground Beef Squash Casserole

Okay, so I forgot to take a picture of this before we cut into it, so this is the best you get. :)

This recipe came from Facebook - Live Better Health Coach This is a recipe that is a lean and green meal with Medifast. We really liked it. It had alot of flavor and is healthy.

Italian Ground Beef Squash Casserole
Recipe says serves 2 if you are following the Lean and Green program

5oz cooked 93% lean ground beef (could also use ground turkey)
2/3 cup reduced fat mozarella cheese
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese (I only had non fat so I used that)
1/2 cup tomato puree. (I pureed a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles and used 1/2 cup of that and froze the rest)
1 cup sliced zucchini
1 cup sliced yellow squash
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
2 tsp reduced fat parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray casserole dish with pam and set aside. Combine tomato puree, garlic powder, salt, basil, and oregano until well blended. Brown ground beef and measure out 5oz of ground beef. Add to tomato mixture and stir until blended together. Layer the sliced zucchini and squash in the bottom of a 8x8 casserole dish. Pour ground beef mixture over vegetables. Spread the cottage cheese over meat mixture. Top with mozarella cheese and then sprinkle parmesan cheese over that. Bake for 25 minutes.
