this was definitely a successful quick and easy dinner!!!! I used fresh fettuccine instead of Pappardelle.
Pappardelle with Salmon and Leeks

I also used the 8oz package of Lemon Pepper Pappardelle from Trader Joes. If you can get it, USE IT!!! It was amazing. Since it was less than the stated amount of pasta, I used about 12 oz of salmon instead of a pound, but I kept the same amount of veggies. This was SO delicious. My husband raved about it and wants it again soon. My kids (4&6) also ate it up, but they love fish and we have had this pasta before from TJ's and they already loved that. Since it is a lemon pepper pasta, I used a bit less ground pepper, but I still used the same amount of lemon. Fresh, delicious, yum!

This was great. Used an 8 oz package of pappardelle from Trader Joe's and 4 5-oz pieces of salmon to feed 4 people. I added about 1/2 cup defrosted peas to the leeks right before the wine to add some color. Can't wait t make again.

Delicious - would definitely make again. For those who can't find pappardelle, I believe wide or extra-wide egg noodles would be comparable.

This was very, very good. I used plain papparadelle. Used extra salt and pepper to keep everything from being bland. Will definitely make again and again.

Delicious light evening meal. I was able to find pepardelle at an Italian grocery. The leeks tended to clump a bit when I added the pasta which required thorough mixing.. Even so, it was a meal that satisfied my pasta craving and gave me a salmon feast to boot!

This was really tasty. I had some left over Salmon and this was the perfect way to use it up. I bought the Lemon Parppadelle from Trader Joes as suggested by others and it was great! For our taste, I added a little more lemon pepper seasoning and increased the wine and chicken broth a bit. Definitely a dish that will be made again!

I liked this and will make it. A friend did the prep so I can't comment a lot on that. She did most of it while the guests were in the kitchen and it looked pretty straightforward. Good salmon is the key I think. I am a lemon fan so that probably helps. But I thought the leeks went really well with the salmon. There is not much to this dish. The better quality the ingredients I think the better it becomes. Oh and a good bottle of wine didn't hurt.

Great flavor, I couldn't find the noodles so I used whole wheat fettuccine. I was very surprised that it had so much flavor, seemed so simple.

Will keep this in the repertoire! Light refreshing yet filling too. I hope to actually find the pappardelle for next time

Not sure what all the 5 star ratings are for. It's not a bad dish but there wasn't much flavor beyond the lemon. There was a mushy quality to the leeks that didn't mesh well.

Well, I thought it was good and DH thought it was good but DD thought it was bland. We got the Lemon Pepper Pappardelle from Trader Joes as suggested. I used fresh mint but dried thyme. We BBQ'd the salmon on our Traeger which cut a tablespoon of olive oil (I did mix the butter into the pasta). Maybe next time I'll just add the oil into the sauce and add a bit more wine and broth to coat the pasta a bit more.

Saving this recipe! Perfect spring dish....light and tasty. I could not find pappardella, so I used fresh fettuccine.
