REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I was looking for a way to use some leftover cooked salmon fillets so I improvised a little for this recipe. Since I wasn't using canned salmon I didn't have the liquid from the can but I did have some bottled clam juice which worked fine. I think chicken broth would be fine too.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
We absolutely loved this recipe; however, I have a couple of comments. I followed it exactly and found that while there was plenty of pasta for 4 servings, the amount of salmon and sauce was about right for 2 servings. Also, I needed to double the amount of milk to make enough sauce for the amount of salmon and mushrooms. But don't let that stop you, this is delicious!!
