  • Bring quinoa and water to boil in medium saucepan; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff quinoa with fork; spoon into large bowl.
  • Reserve 1 cup shredded cheese for later use. Add remaining cheese to quinoa along with all remaining ingredients except tomatoes; mix lightly.
  • Spoon into foil-lined 13x9-inch freezer-safe baking pan sprayed with cooking spray; top with reserved cheese. Cover with plastic wrap, then foil. Freeze up to 2 months.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap frozen casserole; discard plastic wrap and foil. Loosely cover casserole with additional foil. Bake 1 hour 20 min. or until heated through, uncovering after 1 hour. (Or, thaw frozen casserole overnight in refrigerator, then bake [uncovered] in preheated 350°F oven 35 to 40 min. or until heated through. Or to omit the freezing step to serve casserole right away, bake [uncovered] casserole in preheated 350°F oven 25 min. or until heated through.)
  • Top with tomatoes before serving.

Special Equipment Needed

Freeze-Ahead Casserole

When you have some extra time on your hands, why not make a casserole for the freezer? Just prepare casserole as directed in foil-lined baking dish, making sure there is enough foil extending over edges of dish to cover and seal. Freeze casserole until firm. Remove from dish; wrap tightly with foil. Place foil-wrapped casserole in labeled and dated freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to thaw, unwrap frozen casserole and return to original baking dish. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then bake as directed just before serving.

Healthful Habit

Drink at least 4 to 6 glasses of water throughout the day to keep hydrated and help control your appetite – sometimes thirst can be mistaken for hunger.

Special Extra

Sprinkle with additional 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil leaves before serving.
