Cut squash lengthwise in half; discard seeds. Cut each half crosswise into thin slices; remove peels.

Stir in flour and pepper; cook and stir 1 min.
Gradually stir in broth; cook and stir 2-3 min. or until thickened.

Drain squash, arrange in 8- or 9-inch square baking dish; cover with half the sauce. Repeat layers; top with bacon and remaining cheese.
