  • Cook spaghetti in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, use vegetable peeler to peel asparagus into thin strips.
  • Drain spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Cook cream cheese product, broth, lemon zest and juice in same saucepan on medium heat 5 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended, adding enough of the reserved cooking water until sauce is of desired consistency.
  • Return spaghetti to saucepan. Add asparagus; mix lightly. Cook 2 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Dressing.

How to Easy Peel the Asparagus

When peeling the asparagus and getting near the bottom of each spear, place the thin spear on top of a flat wooden spatula handle. This will raise the asparagus off the work surface to allow you to shave the last few strips.

Special Extra

Prepare using Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Product or Philadelphia Dill Cream Cheese Product.
