Ingredients

  • 4

    cups cubed butternut squash

  • 3

    cups cauliflower florets

  • 1

    large potato (about 13 oz.), peeled and cubed

  • 4

    wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese

  • ¼

    cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

  • ¼

    tsp. salt, divided, or more to taste

  • 3

    tbsp. fat-free half & half

  • 1

    tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)

  • ½

    tsp. chopped garlic

  • 2

    dashes black pepper, or more to taste

Directions

Bring 2 large pots of water to a boil on the stove. Add butternut squash to one pot; add cauliflower and potato to the other pot. Once water returns to a boil, reduce heat to medium. Allow to cook until all veggies are very tender, 15 - 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Carefully drain water from the pots. Transfer cauliflower and potato to a large bowl and set aside. Transfer squash to another large bowl. Mash squash with a potato masher. Add cheese wedges, shredded cheese, and 1/8 tsp. salt, and stir until evenly distributed. Set aside. To the bowl of cauliflower and potato, add half & half, butter, garlic, remaining 1/8 tsp. salt, and black pepper. Mash with a potato masher until completely mixed. If you like, season to taste with pepper and additional salt. Set aside. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray. Spoon half of the squash mixture into one corner, and spoon the other half into the opposite corner. Evenly divide cauliflower-potato mixture between the two remaining corners. Using a spoon, lightly swirl the mixtures together. (Don't over-mix!) Broil until top is crispy, about 8 - 10 minutes. Serve it up and enjoy!
