I went ahead and tried this recipe anyways because I was making salmon for dinner and trying to hide it in some pasta because my husband does not like seafood. I made the garlic butter sauce, then added a little milk to make it more creamy. Then I added pieces of cooked squash and zuccini to add some veggies to it, and it was delicious. I topped it off with 1/2 cup or so of shredded asiago cheese. Parmesean would be great too. This was so good. I loved it. You could substitute the salmon for chicken if you want to and it would be equally as good.
