  • Heat oven to 375ºF.

Add broth; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or just until mixture comes to boil. Add cream cheese product; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
  • Drain pasta; return to pan. Add zucchini mixture, spinach, basil and 1/2 cup mozza; mix lightly. Spoon into 9-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining mozza.
  • Bake 10 min. or until mozza is melted.

Shortcut

Substitute 1-1/2 to 2 cups pasta sauce for the broth and cream cheese.

Variation

Prepare recipe using your favourite fresh veggies, such as onions, peppers and/or tomatoes, instead of the zucchini and/or mushrooms. Or for a peppery twist, substitute arugula for the spinach.

How to

Always reserve some of your pasta-cooking water just in case your prepared sauce needs thinning or extending.
