Whisk together the eggs, lite cottage cheese, and herbs, then stir in the cooked pumpkin and frozen veggies.

Spray an oven dish or cake tin with baking spray and pour the mixture in. Sprinkle over the grated Parmesan cheese then lay the tomato slices on top. You can dust tomato slices with extra dried herbs if desired.
