Betty Crocker brand, Chicken Helper, Fettuccine Alfredo packs the too thick noodles separate from the flavor packet. With the suggested added butter, the flavoring is pretty good. I believe the rich flavor of alfredo sauce is from using real butter but I'm most certainly not an expert on Italian sauces or any other foods. As a prospective thru-hiker, I am interested in tasty grocery store resupply options.
I fixed the sauce without milk but with extra cheddar cheese which is a staple for me in the first few days of a trip.
I wonder what my spouse will do with the fettuccine packets at home, after I've left with all of the flavoring packets. With ramen, I leave the flavoring/salt and just take the noodles. Fusion cuisine aka leftovers--ramen flavored fettuccine. No thanks, none for me.
