Creamy Chicken, Vegetables, and Noodles

I found this recipe on the Kraft Foods website. It's like a mac and cheese with vegetables added. I used whole wheat egg noodles and added a little ground red pepper to give it a little more kick. I think I used more milk than it said and maybe a little more cheese too. This was a nice quick recipe.

Creamy Chicken, Vegetables, and Noodles
4 cups egg noodles, uncooked
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Dressing
3-1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow squash, sliced
6 oz. VELVEETA 2% Milk Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 Tbsp. fat-free milk

COOK pasta as directed on package.
MEANWHILE, cook chicken in dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 5 to 7 min. or until chicken is done, stirring occasionally. Stir in vegetables; cover. Simmer on medium heat 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
MICROWAVE VELVEETA and milk in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 3 min. or until VELVEETA is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1-1/2 min. Add to chicken mixture; mix lightly. Serve over pasta.
