Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk in flour. Cook 2 or 3 min without browning, stirring constantly. Whisk in milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer gently 5 min. Add herbed cream cheese, Swiss cheese, salt, pepper and ground nutmeg. Stir until cheeses melt.

Meanwhile, slice potatoes into 1/4-inch (1 cm) slices. Layer potatoes and sauce alternately in a buttered 9-inch (23 cm) casserole dish, ending with sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheat 350 °F (180 °C) oven for 1 hr and 20 min or until potatoes are tender. Let stand 5 to 10 min before serving.
