I've been looking for ways to use canned salmon besides patties... This was quick easy and very, VERY good. A good way to add another fish dish to your menu. Have it in place of regular spaghetti for a swith-up. Again, it was simply delicious. Oh yeah, almost forgot... I used half the bacon and none of the cream. Ate it without the pasta to kick the extra carbs and calories too.

I have a family with very adventurous taste buds who eat a wide variety of foods, but this got a big thumbs down at the table.

Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum. I'm always looking for quick can recipes! I loved this one, I made the salad that it suggested to make with it, and it was an awesome combo. Next time I make this, I'll serve on Texas toast instead of the pasta.

I made this recipe with high hopes, but it just wasn't for us. Reread the instructions, but was done correctly. Think that the acid of the tomatoes didn't mesh well with the salmon.

My husband and I thought this was great! I used some leftover salmon I had baked instead of the canned. I also cooked the bacon in the microwave, and didn't use the bacon grease. I didn't think it was at all watery, but I did cook it down, probably more than 4 minutes. I might have used a little more red pepper, too, which gave it a nice kick. When I added the cream, I added enough 1% milk to give it the consistency I wanted. It's a great use of leftover meat--we thought shrimp or chicken or sausage would be good, too.

Made this for my visiting parents along with the spinach and pear salad as recommended. They couldn't stop raving about both! This makes quite a bit of pasta, and it reheats very well.
