Cook noodles in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt and adding peas to the boiling water the last minute. Meanwhile, microwave Neufchatel, milk and onion powder in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until Neufchatel is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 min.
Drain noodle mixture; place in 3-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray. Add Neufchatel sauce, chicken, mushrooms and 1 cup shredded cheese; mix well. Top with remaining shredded cheese. Spread bread with butter; sprinkle with Parmesan. Cut diagonally into quarters; arrange on top of casserole.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until bread is golden brown and casserole is heated through.
