Salmon Fettuccine Alfredo

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.

    I made this without any salmon in it because my husband is a vegetarian. My husband and children loved it and came back for seconds.
