Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a skillet brown the beef. Drain off the excess fat. Stir in the oregano, basil, tomato paste, and ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese.
In a greased 10-inch pie pan, layer the cottage cheese and the Parmesan cheese. Spoon the beef mixture over the layers. Combine the remaining ingredients, except the mozzarella cheese, in a blender. Blend for one minute or until smooth. Pour the mixture over the layers in the pie pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese.
