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.
Substitute 1-1/2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey for the chicken, adding it to the cooked spaghetti along with the vegetables.
If you break the spaghetti in half before cooking, it makes serving the dish easier.
