This is the best pasta recipe I've seen for a long time. It was taken and slightly adapted from a smoked salmon package I recieved. I omitted the salmon, and made it only with the vegetables... It went SO good. You may add salmon pieces if you like, though...

You made me look good!!! I made this recipe for a group of over 100 with rave reviews. Great job. I added broccoli and left out mushrooms but any kind of veggies would do. It was wonderful. Thank you
