For perfect pasta that's cooked just right, test it often near the end of the cooking time suggested on the package. The perfect pasta is done when it's tender, but still slightly firm as you bite into it. To keep the pasta from cooking any further, immediately drain it in a colander.
Substitute 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER CARVING BOARD Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Strips for the cut-up fresh chicken. Cook and stir chicken breast strips, dressing, broccoli and VELVEETA on medium-low heat until heated through. Toss with fettuccine until well coated.
