    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

    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

    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 is a great tasting dish and easy to prepare. To increase the veggies, I added more mushrooms and some sliced zucchini to the blend. Yum! - 12/28/09
