Let's Make It
Heat oven to 425ºF.
Toss Brussels sprouts and squash with oil; spread onto foil-covered rimmed baking sheet. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until crisp-tender, turning after 20 min.
Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Use slotted spoon to remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from skillet. Return bacon and reserved drippings to skillet. Add onions; cook and stir 10 min. or until crisp-tender. Add cream cheese spread and broth; whisk until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture comes to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 1 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Transfer vegetables to 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray. Pour cheese sauce over vegetables; mix lightly. Sprinkle with shredded cheese; cover.
Bake 20 min. or until heated through, uncovering for the last 5 min.
