Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the inside of a 2-quart casserole dish.
  2. Boil carrots in a pot of lightly salted water until slightly tender, about 10 minutes. Add zucchini and onion; boil until zucchini is tender, 5 to 10 more minutes. Drain.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk flour into melted butter forming a paste, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir half-and-half into paste, stirring constantly, until mixed. Add bouillon cubes and stir until dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes. Add Colby-Jack cheese, mustard, and dill; whisk until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in vegetables. Transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish.
  4. Mix bread crumbs with 1/4 cup melted butter in a bowl until butter is fully incorporated. Sprinkle over top of casserole.
  5. Bake casserole in the preheated oven until bubbling and topping is browned, about 45 minutes.

I loved the idea of this dish but thought the vegetables would be overlooked and mushy, so I skipped steaming them and roasted them at 400F for half an hour then poured the cheese sauce over and added the bread crumbs, which I mixed with a bit of cheese instead of all the extra butter. I reduced the heat to 350 and baked about 20 minutes until the top was browned. Thanks, Angela

Very tasty; just enough of a cheesy taste to make you wonder what the flavor is . . . I do think this made too much sauce; next time I will do half-again as many veges for the same amount of sauce.
