COOK pasta as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions; cook 1 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in shrimp; cook 3 min., stirring frequently. Add tomatillo mixture, cilantro and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bring to boil; simmer on low heat 2 to 3 min. or until shrimp are tender.

DRAIN pasta; place in large bowl. Add shrimp mixture; mix lightly. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Grill tomatillos and peppers instead of cooking them in boiling water. Heat grill to medium heat. Grill tomatillos and peppers 8 to 10 min. or until tender, turning occasionally. Blend with broth, cream cheese and garlic until smooth. Continue as directed.
Creamy Tomatillo & Chicken Skillet
Substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces, for the shrimp. Add to hot oil with the onions; cook and stir 8 to 10 min. or until chicken is done. Add tomatillo mixture, cilantro and 1/4 cup Parmesan; continue as directed.
