Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
Variation
Substitute 4 cups firmly packed fresh baby spinach leaves for the peas, and stir in 1/4 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes with the shredded cheese.
How to Warm the Pasta Serving Bowl
Few things lose heat faster than hot cooked pasta served in a cold bowl. To help keep cooked pasta hot, preheat the serving bowl by pouring hot water into the empty bowl and letting it stand for a minute to warm up. Drain water and fill with cooked pasta just before serving.
