Step 1
Mix turkey, Parmesan, bread crumbs and garlic just until blended. Shape into 12 meatballs, using about 1/4 cup turkey mixture for each meatball. Cook in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat 5 to 7 min. or until meatballs are no longer pink, turning occasionally. (Meatballs will not be done.) Remove meatballs from skillet; set aside.
Step 2
Cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, add peppers to skillet; cook and stir 3 min. or until softened. Add cream cheese spread and pesto; stir. Cook on medium-low heat 4 min. or until cream cheese spread is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Step 3
Drain spaghetti, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water. Add spaghetti and cooking water to cream cheese sauce; mix lightly. Top with meatballs; cover. Cook 13 min. or until meatballs are done (165°F).
