Expert Tips

Use a few chopped fresh basil leaves in place of the dried basil.

Look for Alfredo sauce in a jar in the pasta sauce aisle. Do not use refrigerated Alfredo sauce; it can separate when heated and may curdle during baking.

The casserole is nice and saucy right out of the oven, so serve it right away.
