  1. Place brats in large sauté pan and begin cooking.

  2. Once brats are about half cooked, mix in the peppers, onions, zucchini and garlic. Stir occasionally.

  3. Meanwhile, make sauce by melting butter in separate sauce pan. Once melted, stir in the flour, continue to stir for two minutes. Add in half the milk and whisk to thoroughly blend the flour mixture. Pour in the rest of the milk continue to stir until thickened, and then add in the parmesan cheese.
