Summer squash with cottage cheese tomato sauce

I am not sure really what to call this. Hearty, toothsome, savory, cheesy, healthy, comfort food. All of the above? 

If you are doing a Medifast program, this counts as a complete lean and green meal. 

1 cup diced summer squash (2 greens)
1/2 cup diced tomato (1 green)
1 cup low fat cottage cheese (2/3 lean)
1 egg (1/3 lean)
Salt and pepper

Spray a large nonstick skillet with Pam, and sautée your squash with a little salt and pepper. Remove to a bowl when done. 

In the same pan, combine your tomatoes, cottage cheese, and egg. Stir to combine. Continue to stir occasionally, until the cheese is melted, then continue to cook until the sauce has thickened to the consistency you want. 

Pour your sauce over your squash, and enjoy!
