My husband really liked this sauce over penne. I liked the sauce but found our smoked salmon--a gift from a friend--too salty for my tastes; I omitted the pinch of salt in the recipe. I should've chopped the salmon up into tiny little bits. (People who find whole plates of alfredo boring by the end of the meal will probably feel similarly about this sauce.) I didn't prepare the sauce ahead of time, but I did prepare it over medium-low heat and used black instead of white pepper and probably half the lemon juice. I'll be trying this sauce again with poached salmon. Thanks for posting!
