      @Lorelei Cohen: I haven't tried this with a low fat milk, but I don't see why it wouldn't be just as good.

      As does Mia Mia I also cut back on fat in the milk we drink but we drink one percent milk. Your dishes always looks so good though that I can't imagine that any small difference could affect how luxurious it is.

      Sounds yummy, and I just bought 2 zukes yesterday. I would substitute skim milk, though -- it's the only kind we buy. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
