INGREDIENTS

4 large baking potatoes (6 to 8 ounces each)
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup fat-free (skim) milk
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

PREPARATION:

  1. Pierce potatoes several times with fork. Place in microwave oven on paper towel. Microwave on HIGH 15 minutes or just until softened. Wrap in paper towels; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Bring water to a boil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add broccoli. Cook 5 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Drain. Add milk, cottage cheese, mustard and red pepper flakes to broccoli in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; remove from heat.
  3. Combine 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese and flour in medium bowl. Toss to coat cheese with flour; add to broccoli mixture. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until cheese is melted and mixture is thickened.
  4. Cut potatoes open. Divide broccoli mixture evenly among potatoes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese.
