2 cups low fat milk

Boil potatoes in large pot of salted water 8 to 10 minutes, until tender.

Whisk some milk mixture into egg; whisk egg mixture into pan; cook 1 minute whisking constantly; do not let boil.
Spoon over zucchini, spreading level. Sprinkle with Parmesan. (Can be prepared a day ahead. Cool, refrigerate covered.) Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through and golden. Cut into squares and serve hot or warm.
