Let's Make It
Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with red pepper. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 min. on each side or until done (165ºF). Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
Add remaining oil to same skillet. Add vegetables; cook and stir 3 min. Add garlic; cook 3 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Stir in thyme and broth. Remove from heat.
Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water. Return pasta to pan. Add reserved water; mix lightly. Place on large platter; top with chicken, vegetable mixture and cheeses.
Omit the yellow squash and use 6 zucchini instead.
How to Select the Best Zucchini
For best results, select small zucchini for recipe use. Because they're younger, they have thinner, more tender skins and smaller seeds. The skins should be free of blemishes and have a vibrant color.
Sprinkle with crushed red pepper before serving.
