Creamy and cheesy, this delicious pasta dish will please most palates. The richness of the sauce gets a fresh boost with the addition of basil. Packed with vegetables - it is a great meatless recipe solution.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Substitute 1-1/2 to 2 cups pasta sauce for the broth and cream cheese.
Prepare recipe using your favourite fresh veggies, such as onions, peppers and/or tomatoes, instead of the zucchini and/or mushrooms. Or for a peppery twist, substitute arugula for the spinach.
How to
Always reserve some of your pasta-cooking water just in case your prepared sauce needs thinning or extending.
