Questions & Replies

  1. How many servings does this make and how many calories per serving


  1. Yikes. 2 Jars of Alfredo sauce and 4 cups of cheese? Heart attack on a plate.
  2. Delicious and so easy! I used Newman's Own Alfredo sauce and was in a bit of a hurry, so I just used frozen baby florets of broccoli - which worked just fine. I didn't use the 4-cheese Mexican blend, but instead decided on Parmesan cheese. I also did not use nearly as much cheese (maybe not even half) and it was still great! I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thank you for sharing!
  3. I did not have penne so I used bow tie pasta and fresh veggies. I also only used 1 jar of the alfredo sauce and only 2 cups of cheese. I sprinkled the top with oregano and some fresh pepper. This was a huge hit and reheated so well the next night in the oven. Thank you for posting such a great quick supper recipe.
  4. This is yummy! It was easy and my husband even rated it a 5! I used Classico Alfredo Sauce and I seasoned the chicken with garlic, salt and pepper. I didn't use the full amount of cheese on the top, but it was just right. I will definitely make this again!!
  5. I don't usually like casseroles, but I had most of the ingredients in the house so decided to try it. It was very, very good. I had some large chunks of good quality frozen broccoli, that I just added to the pasta the last five minutes of cooking, and it turned out perfectly. Used some fajita spiced store-bought chicken, which gave it a little kick.


  1. Just extra oven time, by 10 mins.
  2. This is so, so good!! I had made it previously just for my boyfriend and me, but this time I expanded the recipe to accommodate six for a post-Christmas party. I only use Bertoli Alfredo sauce, I use frozen broccoli and I use 11-13 chicken tenderloins instead of breasts (so much cheaper than that many breasts!). Everyone, even the kids, had seconds. This will definitely join my homemade cookbook.


My family & I live in NE Ohio right along Lake Erie. We love to try new dishes and usually eat something new every week. I've been addicted to Recipezaar since the 1st day I got the Internet in my home years ago and it has given me tons of new ideas and some awesome recipes. I like to read, garden, play with the grandkids, travel (although we haven't had time for a good vacation in awhile), and I love surfing the Internet. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
