Ingredients

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 medium yellow summer squash, sliced
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 small eggplant, sliced
  • 2 medium leeks (white portion only), sliced lengthwise into quarters
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (6-1/2 ounces) garlic-herb spreadable cheese
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

Directions

Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 15 minutes or until tender, turning once.
In a large bowl, combine the squash, zucchini, eggplant and leeks. Add salad dressing and toss to coat. Transfer vegetables to a grill wok or basket. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 8-12 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with salt and keep warm.
Combine spreadable cheese and sour cream. With a sharp knife, cut an "X" in each potato. Fluff pulp with a fork. Spoon grilled vegetables over potatoes; dollop with cheese mixture. Garnish with basil. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: If you do not have a grill wok or basket, use a disposable foil pan. Poke holes in the bottom of the pan with a meat fork to allow liquid to drain.
