Salmon Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Alfredo sauce and salmon are a palate-pleasing pair in this creamy pasta toss with crisp veggies. We love the flavors, but you could also fix this with tuna, shrimp or chicken. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen

"It was OK. I would add more brocolli."

"This recipe was pretty good. I loved the crunch of the peppers and broccoli. Unfortunately, our salmon was not very fresh, it had been in the freezer for a while so it had a very fishy taste. I'd like to try it again with fresher salmon next time. I also wish the alfredo sauce had a stronger flavor. I should have added more garlic and some pepper, perhaps. I'm going to try making my own alfredo sauce next time and seeing how it turns out."

"I made this for dinner and my boyfriend and I agree salmon and alfredo sauce don't mix. Fish is good but I wouldn't mix it with a cream based sauce."

"Made it for Valentine's Day dinner and we LOVED it. We used fresh salmon fillets instead of packaged and it was fantastic."
