This was delicious. I put cod fillets in the dish with the rest of the ingredients, cooked for 30 mins and it was really good.

I live in Australia and don't know what 4 cheese sauce is. They do cheese sauce in jars which you put on pasta but it is very gluey with a fake taste. Does anyone know what the equivalent is please?
