  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick coating. Preheat the skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir squash, carrots, and sweet pepper in hot skillet about 5 minutes or until nearly tender. Add broccoli and remaining chicken broth to skillet. Cook, covered, about 3 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.

  • Stir in the mustard mixture; heat through. To serve, sprinkle with parsley. Makes six 3/4-cup servings.

Spray for Success:

Nonstick spray coating not only eliminates the mess of greasing pans, it also saves on fat and calories. For added pizzazz, look for roasted garlic-, olive oil-, and butter-flavored sprays. Compare the difference of using nonstick spray in place of oil, margarine, or butter
