I cut this recipe in half for just my husband and I. This was so easy and good that I wish I hadn't cut it half! I used a 5oz can of salmon and that seemed like enough. I did think the sauce was a tad thinner than I had hoped but it really worked out fine with everything else. I can't wait to make this again!

Creamy Salmon Linguine is fantastic. After using hundreds of recipes from the internet this is one of the best "hands down". I only used 1/2 the cream with half and half for the other half, but otherwise this recipe is amazing. This will be one of the recipes used for company - its easy and they will think you are genius.,

I used all the ingredients but not necessarily in the order the suggest and a little more garlic. I also added a 1/2 cup of wine and mushrooms. . It was so amazingly delicious.!

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!!!!
