"This was so easy and delicious! I substituted red pepper flakes because I was almost out of cayenne."

"This is my go-to whenever I have some left-over FRESH salmon. ( I don't usually use canned salmon for anything). Good flavor and the cayenne gives it a wee kick without making it "hot"."

"not impressed. even though i love pasta and seafood. canned salmon can be used for many things, but the texture of this was off putting. i think it would be much better with fresh and if i do this again it will be."

"I don't know why I waited so long to make this recipe, because it was delicious, and super easy, and my family ate all of it (which is very rare). I used the canned salmon, but I'm hoping to try it with some fresh cooked salmon sometime, because that would make it even more amazing!!!"

"Quick and tasty. I used wild Sockeye salmon cooked in olive oil w/garlic. I added broccoli florets, pimiento and a splash of lemon juice to the pasta. Great dish!"
