  • Cook spaghetti in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, cook and stir chicken and vegetables in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 min. or until chicken is done. Remove from skillet; set aside. Add cream cheese product, flour and broth to skillet; bring to boil, stirring constantly with whisk. Simmer on medium-low heat 5 min., stirring frequently.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Drain spaghetti; return to saucepan. Add cream cheese sauce, chicken mixture and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan; mix lightly. Spoon into 2-L casserole dish; cover.
  • Bake 25 min. or until heated through. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan; bake, uncovered, 2 min. or until mozzarella is melted.


Substitute 1-1/2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey for the cooked chicken. Add to drained cooked spaghetti with the cooked vegetables, cream cheese sauce and Parmesan; continue as directed.

Cooking Know-How

If you break the spaghetti in half before cooking it makes serving the dish easier.

Makeover Savings

Instead of making the traditional dish with butter and milk, we used Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Product and 25%-less-sodium chicken broth. In addition, we reduced the overall amount of cheese in the dish and used Cracker Barrel Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese and Kraft 100% Parmesan Light Grated Cheese. All of these changes result in a savings of 160 calories and 10 g of total fat, including 5 grams of saturated fat, per serving.
