    We had this for lunch today. It was relatively easy to prepare and tasted good. A nice blend of flavors and the crushed red pepper added a nice kick, however I personally felt that the sauce was too thin. I was not incredibly impressed with the directions as written. Step 4 mentions that the sauce would thicken, but I'm not sure how as no thickening agent is added. Maybe everyone else knows something I don't. Also the bacon is not mentioned again after setting it aside in step 2, so I actually forgot about it as I had prepared it earlier and halfway through eating our meal, we added it. I would assume that it IS too be added, I guess with the salmon and cream, but as it is not stated, I was confused. If I make this again, I would probably alter it and add eggs to the sauce as that might help to thicken it, but probably we will just stick to "plain ol' spaghetti carbonara."

    I also didn't have the full amount of tomatoes needed. This was good, but I found that the canned salmon took away from the sauce. I'm not sure if fresh salmon or no salmon would have been better.

    Yum yum yum! I love it! I didn't have all the diced tomatoes-so i had to add half a can of stewed tomatoes-seemed fine, but I don't have the original way to compare it to of course.
