Mealthy Tip

For an even quicker take on this dish, you can cook the salmon in a skillet. You will save about 10 or 15 minutes. Or if you are really short on time, you can used canned salmon; just sauté in a skillet with lemon zest and garlic until warmed and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Goat cheese would make a nice creamy substitute for the ricotta cheese. Any variety of pasta will work with this recipe; try rigatoni or spaghetti!

I too would skip the salmon and ricotta mixture here. I used chicken and really liked this, but I don't like fish and dairy together.

Used some of our leftover penne to make this pasta dish. This one was alright. Not my favorite dish I have made, but so-so. The pasta portion of it was good. I would probably skip the salmon next time and just opt for chicken or fresh peas in this one.

I liked the salmon with the ricotta sauce. I cooked the salmon in my cast iron skillet and it turned out great. I used orecchiette pasta instead of penne also.

Took out the salmon and made this vegetarian by adding broccoli and carrots. It's one of my favorite pastas, especially the ricotta sauce. So rich and decadent.

Made this with canned tuna. I thought it came together nicely. Used spaghetti noodles instead of penne also. Great with the sauce. Not something I would eat regularly because of the carbs. Maybe next time I will try with zoodles.
