  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, combine cracker crumbs, Parmesan and oregano in pie plate. Lightly beat egg white in separate pie plate. Dip chicken in egg, then in crumb mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each breast.
  • Heat large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. on each side or until done (170ºF). Spoon 1 cup pasta sauce evenly over chicken; top with mozzarella. Cover; simmer on low heat 3 min. or until sauce is heated through and cheese is melted.
  • Meanwhile, drain pasta; return to pan. Add remaining pasta sauce; toss to coat. Cook on medium heat 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • Spoon pasta mixture onto serving plates; top with chicken.

Makeover - How We Did It

Save 340 calories and 18g of total fat, including 5.5g of saturated fat, per serving by substituting lower-fat Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses for the full-fat cheeses, and by substituting reduced-fat cracker crumbs for the bread crumbs. We also dipped the chicken in beaten egg whites instead of whole eggs, and cooked the chicken in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray instead of in hot oil. Finally, we reduced the amount of cooked pasta per serving from 1-1/2 cups to 1 cup.
