So easy so delicious! I used a small can of red salmon and bowtie pasta. Also used plain cream cheese (lite) Glad I caught up with you on Zaar chat

This was very easy to prepare. I put a little bit of mustard on a small sample to see if I would like the taste. I agree with the the other reviewer that the mustard took away from the dish. It just didn't seem to go well with the dish. I actually think it would have been better as just a pasta dish without the salmon.

I sent this recipe to my mother, who is on a special diet for her high cholestorol...and she has been raving about it all night. The serving sizes are more then enough, and she had more then she could eat-thus making it VERY good for her diet.
