4 medium, skin-on russet potatoes, scrubbed
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups mixed summer vegetables (such as onions, mushrooms, yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli, green beans, red peppers or green peppers), chopped
6 ounces Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar or Cabot White Oak Cheddar, grated (about 1 ½ cups)
CUT potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until a fork will easily pierce potatoes (about 5 minutes). Drain.
HEAT 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet. When oil is hot, add cooked potatoes and use a spatula to stir so that potatoes are coated with oil. Add ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and garlic. Let potatoes sit, undisturbed for 4 minutes to crisp up on one side.
REMOVE from heat. Transfer potatoes to an oven-safe casserole dish.
PREHEAT broiler to high.
HEAT remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet over medium high heat. Add vegetables, stir to coat with oil, and sauté for 4 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water and cover immediately. Steam vegetables for 2 to 3 minutes until they are tender, but still a little crisp.
TRANSFER vegetables to dish with cooked potatoes and top with cheese.
PLACE the dish under broiler, about 4 inches from the heat. Cook until the cheese melts (about 2 minutes). Serve hot.

I'm not a huge fan of zucchini, but we got a bunch from our CSA. This looked promising as a way to make them somewhat tasty and it sure was. My kids LOVED this. They ate it all and asked for more.
