• 1 (16-ounce) carton fat-free cottage cheese

How to make it

Preheat oven to 400°.

Beat egg substitute and eggs in a large bowl until fluffy. Add 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup Jack cheese, milk, flour, baking powder, salt, and cottage cheese.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add zucchini and the next three ingredients (through mushrooms); sauté for five minutes or until tender. 

Add the zucchini mixture and parsley to egg mixture. Pour mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Top with the remaining 3/4 cup cheddar cheese and 3/4 cup Jack cheese. Arrange tomato slices over cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. 

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees (do not remove dish from oven), and bake for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and set. (Note: Substitute corn or spinach for some of the vegetables, if you wish.)
