This dish was tasty but I found that it didn't have a lot of sauce - which made it rather dry for my tastes. Next time I'll add more cream or milk.

We had this for lunch today. It was relatively easy to prepare and tasted good. A nice blend of flavors and the crushed red pepper added a nice kick, however I personally felt that the sauce was too thin. I was not incredibly impressed with the directions as written. Step 4 mentions that the sauce would thicken, but I'm not sure how as no thickening agent is added. Maybe everyone else knows something I don't. Also the bacon is not mentioned again after setting it aside in step 2, so I actually forgot about it as I had prepared it earlier and halfway through eating our meal, we added it. I would assume that it IS too be added, I guess with the salmon and cream, but as it is not stated, I was confused. If I make this again, I would probably alter it and add eggs to the sauce as that might help to thicken it, but probably we will just stick to "plain ol' spaghetti carbonara."

I also didn't have the full amount of tomatoes needed. This was good, but I found that the canned salmon took away from the sauce. I'm not sure if fresh salmon or no salmon would have been better.

Yum yum yum! I love it! I didn't have all the diced tomatoes-so i had to add half a can of stewed tomatoes-seemed fine, but I don't have the original way to compare it to of course.

This was good. Surprised my dh because he was sure that the tomatoes would over power the dish but the don't. I made this as written but I'm thinking next time I may use leftover grilled salmon. I think that it would be even better.
