  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cook spaghetti in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, cook chicken and vegetables in large nonstick skillet 5 min. or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • Bring Neufchatel, flour and broth to boil in same skillet, whisking constantly; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min., stirring frequently.
  • Drain spaghetti; return to saucepan. Add Neufchatel sauce, chicken mixture and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan; mix well. Spoon into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; cover.
  • Bake 25 min. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan; bake, uncovered, 2 min. or until mozzarella is melted.

Makeover - How We Did It

Save 7g of fat, including 4 g sat fat, per serving when compared to a traditional tetrazzini by preparing this delicious version with boneless skinless chicken breasts, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. And as a bonus, these changes will result in a savings of 40 calories per serving.

Variation

Substitute 1-1/2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey for the chicken, adding it to the cooked spaghetti along with the vegetables.

Cooking Know-How

If you break the spaghetti in half before cooking, it makes serving the dish easier.

    I chose this recipe because did not call for a creamed soup. I added garlic,onion and alittle white wine to the sauce. This a nice way use up leftover chicken or turkey. I will make this again.
