"This is a very tasty low-fat recipe! I only used one can of salmon and you really should use the large pasta shells...I used the small ones and one cup will no way serve eight people...had to use 2 a..." See morend a half cups of small shells and I doubled the sauce ingredients. Found it to be a bit too lemony for my taste so I cut the citrus by adding about a quarter cup of lo-fat sour cream. Turned out wonderful! I will keep this recipe and dazzle my friends and family at the next summer BBQ I go to!!"
