Ingredients

STIR IN:

FOR THE TOPPING, COMBINE:

Obviously fettuccine is standard in this dish, but you can use other long-stranded pasta and some tubes like penne, as long as they're fully submerged.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°.

For the fettuccine, combine fettuccine, broth, water, garlic, zest, lemon juice, and salt in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Cover dish with foil and bake 20 minutes. Uncover dish, stir pasta with a fork, cover, and bake 20 minutes.

Stir in half-and-half, 2 cups cheese, and pepper. Cover casserole and bake 15 minutes. Remove foil, stir casserole, and bake uncovered, 10 minutes more.

Preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from element.

For the topping, combine bread crumbs, ⅓ cup pecorino, and parsley. Sprinkle topping over casserole and broil until golden, 35 minutes.

Be sure to submerge the pasta in the broth and water and stir it with a fork to keep it from clumping.

Statistics

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 73.15. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 73.15) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
