Let's Make It
Bring milk and water just to boil in large saucepan on medium heat. Add Macaroni; simmer on low heat 6 min. or until macaroni is tender.
Stir in spinach and Neufchatel; cover. Cook 3 min. until most of the liquid is absorbed and spinach mixture is heated through. Remove from heat.
Add Cheese Sauce Mix and butter; stir until butter is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Substitute 3 cups chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli, bell peppers and/or zucchini, for the spinach. Make sure to cut the firmer vegetables into small pieces to ensure even cooking.
Prepare recipe as directed. Add thin cooked chicken strips; cook on medium-low heat 5 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.
