    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    This fettucine dish is baked with garlic bread on top. For quicker preparation, use a packet of garlic bread. But if you've a little more time, then you'll probably want to make your own, which gives you so much more choice of what bread you use, how much garlic you add to it and if you want to add other herbs as well. The recipe also has instructions for heating and re-serving. I've included the instructions for a single 10-cup capacity dish, but if you are wanting to freeze smaller quantities in several smaller dishes, remember to adjust the cooking times appropriately. I've adapted this recipe substantially from one I found in a recent issue of the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. I've also recently posted recipes for a Greek Lamb & Yoghurt Pasta Bake and a Lentil & Sausage Lasagne (also a baked dish), both adapted from the same source, and with the same detailed instructions for freezing the recipe.

      Simple and delicious. I've tried a number of alfredo reciepes, and this one is by far the best. Tons of flavour! I like the hint of mustard, and baking it makes all the difference for texture and taste. Everyone enjoyed it.

      This was very easy to put together, and it made quite a bit. I will definitely make this again because everyone in my family liked it (not an easy accomplishment in my house!). I really liked the slight hint of mustard in the cream sauce, it really added a nice touch to the dish.
