Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, toss chicken with flour. Heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 3 min. or until evenly browned. Add broth and Neufchatel; cook 3 min. or until Neufchatel is melted, stirring frequently. Stir in spinach.
  • Drain pasta. Add to chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon half into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; top with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Repeat layers; sprinkle with Parmesan.
  • Bake 16 to 18 min. or until mozzarella is melted and casserole is heated through.

Make Ahead

Pasta can be cooked ahead of time. Cook as directed on package, just until al dente. Rinse pasta, drain well and place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to use, thaw pasta by running hot tap water over pasta; drain. Then, use as directed.

Keeping it Safe

Cutting raw boneless chicken breasts into pieces is a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My husband and I both liked this recipe. My husband and I both liked this recipe. However, the recipe did not have any seasoning so I added some premixed Italian Herb Seasoning from McCormick that comes in a Grinder. We both felt it really added to the overall flavor of this dish. I will definitely make this recipe again. Next time, I may add toasted pine nuts and sliced red pepper to the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! So good!! My 16 year-old daughter is so picky and doesn't like spinach; however she actually enjoyed this recipe very much. I doubled it so we will have leftovers. The cream cheese really makes this creamy and tasty. I will be making this again. Perfect for soccer families!!

I made this recipe and like the other recipes Kraft creates, I always add my own seasoning. I used a little more dressing than the recipe called for and it came out perfect. I will make this recipe again. It's great for picky eaters.

My son & daughter-in-law recently had twins, so I try to fix a few casserole meals to get them through the week. She absolutely RAVED about this one! So much so, that it has been requested often. Wonderful flavors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Along with the extra broth and Crm cheese, I added mushrooms, asparagus, sundried tomatoes. Along with the extra broth and Crm cheese, I added mushrooms, asparagus, sundried tomatoes. This was fantastic...I felt it was missing bacon (probably bacon makes everything better). Will make this again
