Let's Make It
Add tomatillos and peppers to 1 qt. (4 cups) boiling water in large saucepan; simmer on low heat 10 min. or until tender. (Do not return water to full boil.) Drain tomatillo mixture; place in blender. Add broth, cream cheese and garlic; blend until smooth.
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions; cook 1 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in shrimp; cook 3 min., stirring frequently. Add tomatillo mixture, cilantro and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bring to boil; simmer on low heat 2 to 3 min. or until shrimp are tender.
Drain pasta; place in large bowl. Add shrimp mixture; mix lightly. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan.
Grill tomatillos and peppers instead of cooking them in boiling water. Heat grill to medium heat. Grill tomatillos and peppers 8 to 10 min. or until tender, turning occasionally. Blend with broth, cream cheese and garlic until smooth. Continue as directed.
Creamy Tomatillo & Chicken Skillet
Substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces, for the shrimp. Add to hot oil with the onions; cook and stir 8 to 10 min. or until chicken is done. Add tomatillo mixture, cilantro and 1/4 cup Parmesan; continue as directed.
