Can't say which is the best - the pasta or the salmon! The spices on the salmon were just right and made it tasty. Then, the pasta is so rich and creamy. Together they make a really pretty and good entree. If you have guests that do not enjoy salmon, I bet this would also be good with grilled chicken. The Test Kitchen
