Recipe & picture courtesy of Kraft Foods

Serves 6
Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 30 min

  • 3 cups penne pasta, uncooked
  • 2 Tbsp. KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing
  • 1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 zucchini, cut into chunks
  • 1-1/2 cups cut-up fresh asparagus (1-inch lengths)
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
  1. Cook pasta as directed on package.
  2. Meanwhile, heat dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken and vegetables; cook 10 to 12 min. or until chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently. Add broth and Neufchatel cheese; cook 1 min. or until cheese is melted, stirring constantly. Add Parmesan cheese; mix well.
  3. Drain pasta; return to pot. Add chicken and vegetable mixture; toss lightly. Cook 1 min. or until heated through. (Sauce will thicken upon standing.)

**Personal Review: This was pretty easy to make but I think maybe they are requesting too much chicken broth, my sauce never thickened up throughout because there was a cup of liquid on the bottom.  It tasted great though!**
