In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion, peppers and thyme for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add veal and cook, stirring and breaking up with spoon for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink.

Whisk cornstarch into beef broth and stir into veal mixture. Cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add cream and Cheddar cheeses and stir until melted. Stir in yogurt and parsley and heat through.
