I Like to spice this up a bit more with garlic and jalapenos etc but it is very tasty the way it is - this will stretch to 6 servings but I think 4 is realistic. Surprisingly low in fat and calories. Good budget stretcher

Bergy, thank you for posting this recipe! Finally I have found a perfect canned fish/pasta bake that I LOVE! This is so good! I had to make a couple of subs, firstly I used cream of chicken and corn soup instead of just chicken as it was all I had. I used the regular type as I can't seem to get low-fat here. Also I don't like to have too much pasta so I substituted half the pasta with broccoli which I cooked with the pasta for the last minute of boiling time. This was great as it made it a one-dish meal too. I think this recipe would work great with tuna too and can't wait to try it again. I totally recommend people try this. Thanks!!
THis is pretty good. It is reasonably healthy and easy too. So, for all that, it gets 5 stars from me! Next time I will add some peas or something green to make it a little healthier. THanks Bergy....
Wow, what a yummy recipe - we enjoyed this throughly! Unfortunately I didn't have canned salmon, so steamed a few fillets and then flaked them into nice bite sized chunks - I didn't have cream of chicken soup on hand, but did have a can of cream of celery, which I used and found to be complimentary to the dish. Instead of using 1 casserole dish, I baked in 4 individual sized casserole dishes for my own serving ease. This was a quick and easy dish to prepare and another great way to add the deliciuos health benefits of salmon to your every day life!
