    I did this a little different. I made the salmon in the pack with the pesto, lemon juice and pepper. I added the peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and olive oil to the pasta. I sprinkled some feta on top of the pasta. It was fantastic. I will definitely make this again. - 3/11/09

    This is really good. They can be prepared ahead and frozen. Pull them from the freezer and cook as needed. Especially good for single servings. I add a tablespoon of medium salsa for even more flavor and that extra kick. ummmm. - 3/5/09

    I loved this. I served with regular orzo instead of spaghetti. Don't forget to keep the foil open a wee bit, otherwise the moisture from the vege will create a puddle in the packet (though it is still delicious!) - 12/15/09

    This was easy, a whole meal in one package, filling and an easy clean up as stated by others. I threw it on the grill, served it over brown rice and sprinkled feta cheese crumbles on top. A total hit with the husband. I will make this again and again. - 3/14/07

    Turned out fantastic, though I served it with roasted red potatoes for a bit of kick. Vary up the peppers for a bit of difference, and use lemon juice liberally. - 7/18/09

    This was very tasty and, yes, easy to make. Since there is only DH and me, it provided two delicious meals. Also, it includes a protein, veggies, and a starch. WOO HOO!

    Tried this tonight for dinner and I have to say we really liked it. I am not a salmon lover but I did enjoy this. The only change I made was to omit the mushrooms and increased the tomato and pepper. Thanks for sharing. - 4/10/09

    This recipe was tasty and very easy to make! Though I made some slight changes due to the fact that I didn't have any mushrooms or spaghetti on hand. Instead I substituted 4 cups of broccoli and place on 1/4 cup of cheese tortellini (1 cup for entire recipe). I plan to use the recipe again soon. - 10/18/09
