To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo
It's no WONDER there are so many comments indicating that the finished product is too salty, given that the pasta is cooked in SALTED water, there is 1 cup SALTED butter, garlic SALT, SALT to taste, and SALTY hard Italian cheeses like Parmesan & Romano. Do I see a salty pattern emerging here? Cooking the pasta without salt, using unsalted butter, garlic POWDER instead of garlic salt, and no additional salt from the shaker will help considerably.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
Excellent, flavorful recipe, and not a canned "cream of" ________ soup in sight, yay! I did add an extra can of tuna, and I used baby early peas. Neither changes the recipe substantially. Thank you for a REAL recipe!

Amish Macaroni Salad
Oh my GOODNESS, this is delicious! I followed it almost exactly except for using mayo (didn't have Miracle Whip) and reduced sugar to 1/2 cup. It's creamy & sweet, as it's supposed to be, but with a slight tang from the mustard & vinegar, and the vegetables give it a wonderful crunch. Best macaroni salad I've ever had!
