Total Time: 55 Minutes
- 1 head cauliflower, chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the cauliflower and broccoli in a large stock pot with 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; transfer to a 9x11 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
In small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in cornstarch, mustard, salt, nutmeg, cayenne and pepper until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
Stir in 1-1/4 cups each mozzarella and swiss cheese until melted. Pour over vegetables. Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake 5 minutes longer or until golden brown.
