Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain pasta and return to pot. Stir Alfredo sauce and 3/4 pound Cheddar cheese into pasta until cheese begins to melt. Pour pasta mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bread crumbs are golden brown, about 30 minutes.

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.

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.
