Step 1
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.
Step 2
Reserve 1 cup shredded cheese for later use. Add remaining cheese to quinoa along with all remaining ingredients except tomatoes; mix lightly.
Step 3
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.
Step 1
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.
