Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make Ahead
Prepare as directed except for baking; cover. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator 20 min. before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 15 min. or until heated through.
Healthy Living
Save 40 calories and 7-1/2 g fat, including 1 g sat fat, per serving, by preparing with KRAFT Fat Free Ranch Dressing and RITZ Reduced Fat Crackers.
Trimming Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
