Step 1
Cook spaghetti in saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt.
Step 2
Meanwhile, place clams in separate large saucepan. Add wine and water; cover. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 5 to 7 min. or until clams open. Use slotted spoon to transfer opened clams to bowl; cover to keep warm. Remove and discard any unopened clams.

Add garlic; bring to boil. Cook 3 min. or until liquid is reduced to 1 cup. Add cream cheese and butter; cook on medium-low heat 2 to 3 min. or until melted, stirring constantly. Add Parmesan; cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until melted.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Clean Fresh Clams
Discard any clams with chipped or cracked shells. Gently tap any clams with open shells; discard clams that do not close their shells. Scrub remaining clams; place in large bowl. Add enough water to completely cover clams. Let stand 30 min. to remove sand from inside shells. Remove clams from water, leaving any grit behind. Cook as directed.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with your favourite hot steamed fresh vegetable, such as broccoli or green beans, to round out the meal.
Substitute vegetable broth for the wine.
