  • Add tomatillos and peppers to 1 qt. (4 cups) boiling water in large saucepan; simmer on low heat 10 min. or until tender. (Do not return water to full boil.) Drain tomatillo mixture; place in blender. Add broth, cream cheese and garlic; blend until smooth.
  • 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.

Special Equipment Needed


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.

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.
