      Definately needs more "sauce," but otherwise a great recipe. I loved the dash of lemon juice! I used a shallot in place of the onion, added some extra minced garlic, and low carbed it with Tofu Shirataki Noodles. I also skipped the oil and tenderized the shallots in a bit of cooking spray and water.

      I fattened this otherwise healthy dish up a bit. I added 8 oz. 1/3 fat cream cheese and 2 C of skim milk. I also added about 1/4 C pesto because I needed to use it up. I left EVERYTHING else the same. It was delicious! I mean - WOW! Thanks for this recipe! We love salmon and I need different ways to make it.

      I don't normally like the idea of canned salmon in pasta, but this was delicious and quite refined. I used bavette and baby peas, and after reading Andrea in NH's comment that the dish was a little dry I doubled the pesto, used considerably more parmesan and quite a bit more pasta water. Will make again!
