cup  KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing, divided
 green pepper, chopped
small  onion, chopped
cloves  garlic, minced
cup  chopped fresh cilantro, divided
cup  chopped green olives
lb.  lean ground beef
can  (8 oz.) tomato sauce

Make It

CUT plantains into 1/2-inch-thick lengthwise slices. Heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large nonstick skillet. Add half the plantains; cook 1-1/2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet. Repeat with 2 Tbsp. of the remaining dressing and remaining plantains; remove from skillet. Cover to keep warm.

ADD peppers, onions, garlic, 1/4 cup cilantro, olives and remaining dressing to skillet; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Stir in meat, tomato sauce and seasoning. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; cover. Simmer on low heat 20 min. or until meat is done, stirring occasionally. Transfer to bowl; cover to keep warm. Wipe out skillet with paper towels; spray with cooking spray.

BEAT eggs and milk with whisk until blended; pour half into skillet. Top with layers of half each plantains, meat mixture and cheese. Repeat all layers; cover. Cook on low heat 30 min. or until center is set. Cool 5 min.; sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
