This dish was very easy to make and required very minimal prep. It is great for a weeknight meal. I easily halved the recipe; other than that, I made no modifications. I personally found the smoked salmon just a little too pronounced in the dish so that the other flavors were less apparent. Thanks for a quick, easy meal!
This pasta dish was creamy and delicious. The smoked salmon in it was great. Everyone loved this dish tonight. Thanks for a lovely dinner. Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.
