Very good and kids liked it even with spinach added to it and using mediterannean flavoured bread crumbs. I made my own alfredo sauce as well so it was flavoured like we like it and only baked it for 20 minutes bt next time 15 mins should be sufficient since the cheese darked too much.
I wasn't sure how we'd like cheddar mixed with Alfredo, but it was good. I made my own Alfredo because I'm not a fan of the jarred stuff, so I didn't make it as easy on myself as the recipe intended, but to me it's worth it. The reason it doesn't get a full 5* is that the Alfredo and cheese was really thick after being baked...maybe adding a little milk would make it more saucy-I even made sure I didn't make a super thick Alfredo, I tried to make it the same consistency as I remember the jarred kind being. Also, I wasn't a fan of the cheese on top of the breadcrumbs...it was a little rubbery to me. Other than that, a winner! Served for lunch with a salad.
