Extra Pesto Grilled Salmon gives this creamy pasta toss a luxurious taste and texture. We love it as is, but you could easily sub in any veggies you have on hand for the broccoli. —Jacob Kitzman, Seattle

"I used 3 garlic cloves & a bit more lemon juice. Also a dash of cayenne pepper when cooking the salmon.

Definitely a simple and delicious dish that I will make again soon."

"I made Creamy Salmon Linguine for dinner last night, but with a couple of substitutions. Instead of the broccoli I used about a cup and a half of frozen peas....I added them to the cream sauce prior to adding the salmon flakes. I also used 4 cloves of garlic and added about 1 1/2 tsps. of Dill.....delicious!!!!"
