dry fettuccine pasta
1 (6 ounce) can
1 (15 ounce) can
1/2 (16 ounce) jar
Alfredo-style pasta sauce
Because my family likes a crunchy topping on tuna casserole, I added 1/2 cup of half & half to the mix so I could bake it for twenty minutes with toasted Italian bread crumbs on top. I also broke my raw noodles into two inch size pieces (this I do inside a gallon plastic bag so the hard pasta doesn't scatter), so that the dish was easier to eat. It was very good and easy to prepare.
I used bowtie instead of fettuccine, and I think I would try this again, but it's a little bland. But, that's actually good in our house, because of picky eaters.
This was a quick and easy weeknight meal, and really great comfort food! I subbed in rotini and frozen peas, since it's easier to eat than fettuccini and canned peas gross me out. I drained the pasta overtop the peas so that they'd defrost but not really cook, and added it to the sauce. Also threw in a handful of chopped bell pepper and onion I've been trying to get rid of and it added a little color. I'm not sure where the time of 35 minutes came from...it took me about 5 to chop the extra veggies while waiting for the water to boil, 10 to cook the noodles, and another 5 to heat up the sauce and throw everything together. I will definitely make this again.
I thought this was excellent! I did use frozen peas, because I don't care for canned....and I used angel hair pasta instead of fettucine. Thanks, I will definitely make this again!
a tasty and quick lunch (even for me!). i used macaroni and campbell's cream of mushroom because i didn't have any fetuccini or alfredo sauce on hand but it worked out nicely. the oregano lends a distinct flavor to the dish.
This was great, quick, easy and still good reheated. In other words, everything you want in a weeknight dinner. I did add a good amount of grated parmesean cheese to the jar sauce as I don't like the odd taste in store-bought alfredos, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.
I just kinda used this recipe as inspiration and made a hefty portion for myself for dinner. i used all the ingredients except oregano and basil (didn't have any) It turned out really good!! I didn't measure anything so I wouldn't know about the proportions of the recipe, I just used the ingredients it has listed, minus the last 2.... yummy yummy!!
Did this recipe exactly as directed, except I used sundried tomato alfredo sauce. Turned out really well, and was even good the next day for lunch. Good way to use up some leftover ingredients.
