This recipe is great! Although I changed a few things... First of all, I grilled salmon filets last night in an orange juice, soy sauce and ginger marinade. I used the leftovers in this dish (rather than smoked salmon). I also used Prego tomato sauce with sausage rather than the tomato paste. I didn't have any onion (unfortunately, because I LOVE onion) so I omitted the onion. I used more pesto than called for and no basil or garlic because the pesto sauce had plenty of both. I added a can of chopped tomatoes and a can of green peas (just because I love them) in with the freshly sliced mushrooms and sauteed them all in olive oil. I then mixed all of the ingredients together (including the pasta and the salmon) in a pot then heated it all on a burner. The turn out? DELICIOUS!

To make sure that this dish turns out delicious, you need to use a good quality pesto, or one you know you like, as it really makes a lot of difference! I did make slight changes to this recipe: I used rucola, added a dash of white wine, added porcini mushroom, and used half the salmon uncooked, the color looks prettier, and it also tastes different. (I used the thin salmon slices used to put on bread).

This was GREAT! I used a low carb penne pasta. The only thing I changed was the amount of smoked salmon. I doubled the amt. called for. At my grocery they sell smoked salmon tidbit for $5/lb. They come packaged from the same company making the $16 a pound. This is be my new favorite dish!
