Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Remove from pan; drain. Meanwhile, cook marinara sauce, tomatoes and Neufchatel in same pan on medium heat 5 min. or until Neufchatel is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently.
  • Toss pasta with sauce; spread half onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with layers of sour cream, 1 cup mozzarella and remaining pasta mixture; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.
  • Bake 20 min. or until heated through.

Small Changes Add Up

Small ingredient changes, such as PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, result in a savings of 40 calories and 5g of total fat, including 3g of saturated fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with smart sides, such as a hot steamed fresh vegetable and a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.

Make Ahead

The delicious pasta dish can be assembled ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 8 hours before baking as directed, increasing the baking time to 30 to 35 min. or until casserole is heated through.
