Next, top with 3 more noodles. Spread 1/2 cream sauce evenly over top...finish with remaining mozzarella and fontina. Cover carefully and loosely with foil. Bake for an hour.

This is basically the Olive Garden copycat recipe, no? I'm sure lots of people are looking for it.

I've never eaten at an Olive Garden but I will go just to try this recipe. Sounds wonderful.

How do all the ingredients fit in a 9x13 pan?

Sounds really good, but what do you mean by "romano cheese"? Pecorino romano?

Erik, no worries!! People are always asking for recipes from OG, so I am sure they'll appreciate it. I noted that if anyone did a OG "search" on our site.

Great one!
