Create new weighted raster from DEM and polygons

I am attempting to create a new, weighted raster from the combination of a regional DEM and a polygon shapefile.  I've attached an image - the DEM is the background - the red/yellow region -- and the black polygons are from the shapefile.


What I am attempting to achieve is a new raster where the cell values represented by the polygons are 1 and everything else is zero.  I would like the new raster to have the same extent as the original DEM.


I've tried a few approaches, using Clip to "cut" out the polygons and then Raster Calculator Con function to set various cells to zero but it seems very convoluted.  Wondering if there is a cleaner approach?  


Thanks in advance.
