Stir in contents of package and return to a boil. Reduce heat and continue boiling gently for 8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally. 3. Let stand at least 2 minutes. Stir and serve.
Microwave: In 2-quart microwave-safe bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tbsp. margarine (optional) and contents of package. Microwave uncovered at high about 10 minutes (microwave ovens vary; adjust times as needed.

Stir and serve.
