Had this for dinner last night making it as a 4 person serving but with sides I really had enough for 6 (guess what DMN and I are having for lunch today). The only change I made was to use spring onion (scallion) for the onion and I used a 415g (14oz) can of red salmon which is the amount I normally use when making salmon pasta bake. I used a full cup of grated cheese in the mix and another cups worth sprinkled on the top and it was baked within 30 minutes at 175 degree celsius in a fan forced oven. Thank you *Parsley* for a keeper which is a delicious quick and easy make for during the week.
This was a great basic recipe for me. Not being a fan of cottage cheese, I substituted 16 oz. ricotta cheese and added an egg with it. I'm not sure how number of servings are determined, but 2 adults and a 17-year-old football player had two helpings each and 2/3 of it is still left! We love it!
This is very good! We should have added the extra milk as it was a little dry. I added black pepper to my serving to spice it up a bit but everyone else enjoyed it as is. A good way to use leftover salmon!
