  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I followed the directions closely and agree with many others that this could use more seasoning. I followed the directions closely and agree with many others that this could use more seasoning. I think this recipe can be customized to agree with your taste. I especially like one writer's suggestion of trying this with ham. I also like that the recipe does not call for using a creamed soup. I think the ingredients are very healthy. I also think it could be made in a completely vegetarian style. I really enjoyed making this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Of course, I ALWAYS add more shredded cheese than the recipe calls for. Of course, I ALWAYS add more shredded cheese than the recipe calls for. This was very good! Creamy and rich without the high fat content of cream. Even my husband had a second helping and he is annoyingly picky. I added a half teaspoon of salt and used shredded mozzarella/provolone cheese. I think next time I will use more than one red bell pepper and maybe use small penne pasta instead of spaghetti noodles. Definitely a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was good. This was good. I added some seasonings (pepper,garlic and onion powder) to the chicken as well as some chopped onion. I also added some black pepper and garlic powder to the sauce. Overall it was good and the whole family liked it. I still think it needed a little something so next time I make it I will add garlic to the chicken mixture and a little white wine to the sauce.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like many other reviewers said, this recipe is very bland. Like many other reviewers said, this recipe is very bland. I thought by using genuine, imported Parmesan cheese and adding some chopped onion it would have some taste, but it was really disappointing. And putting the mozzarella on top does no good whatsoever....you couldn't even taste it. Will not make again.

I followed the recipe and added reviewers suggestions- diced onion, minced garlic & herbs. I also added about 2-3 tablespoons of sherry during the cooking of the veggies, as this is in most tetrazzini recipes. After these changes it was pretty good, and I'd probably make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has got to be one of my favorite recipes. This has got to be one of my favorite recipes. I make it all the time. Instead of using chicken broth I make it using chicken base from the Amish, which I always use when a recipe calls for chicken broth. Way more flavorful but also a lot more sodium.
