Preparation

In saucepan, heat béchamel sauce over medium heat; stir in half of the cheese, the lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and onions until cheese is melted; let cool.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook fettuccine until tender but firm, about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain and place in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish.

Add 1 cup (250 mL) of the sauce; toss to coat. Arrange fish over top, cutting to fit if necessary; spoon remaining sauce over fish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bread crumbs. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Or wrap in plastic wrap then heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator, about 36 hours. Add 30 minutes to baking time.)

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
