  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add zucchini, mushrooms, peppers and garlic; cook and stir 3 min. Add flour and seasoning; cook and stir 1 min. Stir in broth; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until thickened. Add cream cheese spread; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until melted.
  • Drain pasta; return to pan. Add zucchini mixture, spinach and 1/2 cup shredded cheese; mix lightly. Spoon into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Bake 10 min. or until shredded cheese is melted.

Preparing Perfect Pasta

Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.
