Kraft Kitchens Tips

Makeover Savings
Save 80 calories and 16 grams of fat per serving by using smoked ham instead of bacon and replacing the egg yolks and whipping cream with PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese, KRAFT Lite Creamy Caesar Dressing, flour and fat-free milk.
Cooking Know-How
Use a large pot of water to cook pasta so it has room to move and won't stick together while cooking.
Serving Suggestion
Serve this entree with a crisp mixed green salad topped with your favorite KRAFT Light Dressing.
