Recently, bubble-up casseroles have been “popping” up all over the place. They’re popular because they combine great taste with convenience. This Bubble-Up Alfredo Bake is another one of the delicious developments from the AllFreeCasseroleRecipes Test Kitchen. The options are endless with this Italian casserole recipe. It’s made with refrigerated biscuits, broccoli, and Alfredo sauce. On its own, this bubble-up bake would make a hearty side to any weeknight meal. You can also choose an add-in, such as chicken, pasta, or another veggie, to make this a complete meal.
We all know that it wouldn’t be right to eat Italian food without breadsticks, so that’s why this recipe has breadsticks built in! No assembly required. (Okay, maybe a little assembly is required…but not much!) Seriously, the preparation for this dish is so minimal that you can come home from work and throw this together and not even break a sweat. You also get to relax while it’s baking, which is always a plus. While it’s baking, it smells heavenly, too. Some would even say it smells like pizza, which is bizarre, but so true.
All of the Italian flavors are here and even though it’s not the most pretty dish you’ll ever make, it gets the job done. It has just the right amount of creaminess from the Alfredo sauce. Tender broccoli in this cheesy, creamy sauce is downright awesome. The little touches of spices help give this more flavor while the biscuits take this to a whole new level with the tender breadiness of it all. Your personalized add-ins will make this perfect for what you’re craving.
