Let's Make It
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add eggplant, cut sides down; cook 5 min. Remove from skillet; cool slightly.
Heat oven to 375°F. Scoop flesh from eggplant halves, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Chop half the eggplant flesh; refrigerate remaining eggplant flesh for another use.
Add zucchini to same skillet; cook 5 min., stirring frequently. Stir in chopped eggplant and spinach; cook and stir 2 min. or just until spinach is wilted. Transfer to large bowl. Add cream cheese spread, mozzarella, pasta sauce, milk, egg and garlic powder; mix well.
Fill eggplant shells with zucchini mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan. Place on baking sheet; cover loosely with foil.
Bake 20 min. Meanwhile, cook pancetta in small skillet until crisp and golden brown, stirring occasionally; drain well.
Top eggplant with pancetta; bake, uncovered, 10 min.
Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
