I did a dumb thing... I made this using leftover spaghetti sauce. The recipe suggested that as an alternative. Well, it wasn't till I was putting it together & saw all the ground beef in the spaghetti sauce that I thought, "Uh oh..." This was a very nice meal & I am rating it on how I think it would've tasted with tomato sauce. I encourage you to use tomato sauce. I think the salmon flavor is delicate enough that it would be better with tomato sauce than with a marinara style spaghetti sauce. But definately don't use the leftover meat sauce!
