In Response to Cookie Diva ... rather than putting down the recipe and rating it 0, why not simply substitute your own alfredo sauce for it. 1) some people like me don't have the time/energy to make my own sauce 2) can't afford it. Personally, I enjoy jarred alfredo, especially Ragu! You were quite rude and brash, especially for never trying the recipe. Personally I poached my fillet with a bit of garlic and red wine. I use rotini because that's what was on sale (yup, that's right, on a super strict budget and can only afford the noodles on sale!! oh wow, why do I have salmon? because I live in Alaska!) ... so jarred alfredo, on sale noodles, and bay caught salmon ... this recipe was pretty divine!

Just fabulous! The only change I made was to use white wine instead of vinegar when cooking the salmon. I've made it several times already and will make it many more! Read More

Wow this was so good. I used the "famous restaurant alfredo sauce" recipe in place of the canned sauce. I also didn't toss it with the parmesan cheese. Will use this recipe again and again. Thinking about replacing the salmon with shrimp and scallops next time. Thanks! Read More

This was a WONDERFUL recipe - our whole family enjoyed it even my 2 year old. We ended up making too much salmon for the original dish and ended up just buying more alfredo sauce and cooking up more rotini to eat it again the next night. Super easy and it took about 20 minutes total to make - I just timed the cooking time of the salmon with the cooking time of the pasta. Thank you for sharing this recipe - will be added to my permanant recipe book at home! Read More

I have not made this recipe but I don't know how anyone could use jarred alfredo sauce. It is like glue and tastes gross! If anything use the alfredo sauce sold in the refrigerated section of the market or better yet make your own! It's so easy - sorry but I'll pass on this one. Read More
