Q: What is the best way to reheat cream-based leftovers like fettucine alfredo? My attempts for reheating dishes like these have resulted in oily, separated messes.

I have the Barefoot Contessa’s lemon fusilli with arugula leftovers waiting for me in my fridge. Is there any hope?

We would reheat it gently on low heat in the microwave, or in a small saucepan over low heat on the stove.

Readers, any tips for reheating this sort of recipe?
