Make It

COOK spaghetti in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, use vegetable peeler to peel asparagus into thin strips.

DRAIN spaghetti, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water. Blend reserved water, cream cheese, garlic, lemon juice and bouillon in blender until smooth.

RETURN spaghetti to saucepan. Add cream cheese sauce and asparagus; mix lightly. Cook on medium heat 3 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with Parmesan and lemon zest.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad to round out the meal.
How to Easy Peel the Asparagus
When peeling asparagus near the bottom of each spear, place the thin spear on top of a flat wooden spatula handle. This will raise the asparagus off the work surface to allow you to shave the last few strips.
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
