Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir 3 min. or until tender. Add broth and cream cheese; cook 2 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Drain pasta. Add to sauce in skillet along with remaining ingredients; mix lightly.
Serve with a steamed green vegetable, such as broccoli, and glass of fat-free milk.
Substitute fresh basil for the parsley.
A Garlic Press Saves Time
A garlic press is a common kitchen tool used to extract both the pulp and juice from fresh garlic by forcing the garlic cloves through small holes in the press. It is a quick and easy way to mince fresh garlic. Garlic presses can be made of materials ranging from strong plastics to stainless steel.
How to Test Cooked Spaghetti
It can be tough to remove a single strand of spaghetti or other long pasta from a big pot of boiling water to test for doneness. Make the task easier by using a small serrated knife. The pasta strand catches on the serrations and lifts right out.
When serving adults, substitute dry white wine for the broth if desired.
