Ingredients

  • 8 cups (about 2 lb. total) zucchini and/or yellow summer squash
  • 2 medium red bell peppers
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese

Instructions

PREHEAT oven to 400° F. Line baking sheet with foil.

PLACE zucchini, bell peppers and onion in single layer on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon thyme; toss lightly to coat.

BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until vegetables are just tender. Transfer to 2-quart serving dish.

MEANWHILE, HEAT evaporated milk, wine, cornstarch, remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon thyme, salt and onion powder in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring just to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, allowing each addition to be melted before adding more cheese. Remove from heat.

POUR cheese sauce over vegetables; toss lightly to coat. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

TIP:
• Large diameter zucchini or yellow summer squash may be cut in half or quarters before slicing.
