This pasta dish, made with Alfredo sauce, is deliciously different from typical tomato-based recipes. Extra cheesy, it goes together quickly and is always popular at potlucks. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas

"I added diced ham and used gluten free noodles to make the dish gluten free. I recommend using gluten free noodles that are a blend of 2-3 flours."

"Delicious recipe! I used fat free ricotta, low-fat sour cream, and part skim mozzarella and it was rich and cheesy. Next time I'm going to add chicken and roasted red peppers :)"

"I have made this dish several times in the last few months and it's just as popular every time. I use a homemade alfredo sauce, and always half the recipe with great results."

"Made this for the family this weekend and everyone really enjoyed it. I choose to use egg beaters, fat free sour cream and part skim ricotta. In fact, I may cut back on the ricotta next time I make it. I also cut up cooked chicken and added to the pasta. Thanks for the recipe!"

"This is so good. I love the grown up version of mac and cheese. I also added grilled chicken, green onions, and bacon pieces just to give my hubby some protein in it. It was so good, my kids couldn't stop eating it."

"This turned out even better than i expected it to! I had planned on making this for an extended family dinner with a vegetarian in mind and when I found out that afternoon she wouldn't be able to make it, i decided to add chicken! It was delicious. I added about 2 cups cooked shredded chicken in with noodle-alfredo mixture. I also did not have fresh parsley so I used dried and added alittle pepper and instead of refrigerator sauce I used one jar of sauce that you get in the spaghetti aisle. It was a hit!"

"The fat content has to be astronomical. That is a huge amount of cheese - and very little else."

"Very very good! I think i will add a little more alfredo sauce next time because it was leaning towards the dry side. Trishaloo, i had the same problem with my leftovers but i added more alfredo sauce and then it reheated just fine. Also next time im going to add broccoli :)"
