  • Heat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, brush vegetables with dressing; grill 3 to 4 min. on each side or until tender. Remove from barbecue. Cut onion slices in half, then cut zucchini and eggplant slices diagonally in half.
  • Drain pasta, reserving 1/3 cup cooking water. Mix cream cheese product and milk until blended.
  • Return pasta to saucepan. Add cream cheese mixture, olives and enough of the reserved cooking water until sauce is of desired consistency. Cook on medium-low heat 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring constantly. Add vegetables; cook and stir 2 min. or until evenly coated with sauce. Serve topped with Romano.

Variation

Prepare recipe as directed, reducing olives to 3 Tbsp. and adding 1 Tbsp. capers to drained cooked pasta in pan along with the cream cheese mixture and reserved pasta cooking water.

Variation

Substitute 1 large red pepper for 1 of the eggplants or zucchini. Cut pepper into quarters, then grill 3 to 4 min. on each side or until lightly charred. Chop into bite-size pieces before adding to the prepared sauce along with the remaining chopped grilled vegetables.

Make Ahead

The vegetables can be grilled ahead of time. Cool, then refrigerate up to 24 hours. Spread onto parchment-covered baking sheet to reheat in warm oven while the pasta is cooking, then continue as directed.
