I like Italian food. Sadly, my two favorite family-owned Italian restaurants have gone out of business. Since I have the occasional craving for chicken Parmesan, when I found this recipe from Kraft, I knew I wanted to share.

What You Need
1 jar (24 oz.) OLIVO by CLASSICO Traditional Pasta Sauce
6 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
6 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1-1/2 lb.)
3/4 lb. spaghetti, uncooked
1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Heat oven to 375°F.
Pour sauce into 13×9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Stir in 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) Parmesan. Add chicken; turn to evenly coat both sides of each breast with pasta sauce mixture. Cover.
Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Meanwhile, cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt.
Top chicken with remaining cheeses; bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until mozzarella is melted. *Note: I use the grated (canned) Parmasan with the sauce but substitute shredded (fresh) cheese mixed with the Mozzarella.
Drain spaghetti. Serve topped with chicken and pasta sauce mixture.
