Made a few alterations based on what was in our house - brocolli for peas and thyme for dill. Also added some garlic powder at the end for a little more zip. It was really good. Easy to make and quick. I will definitely make again.

If you are considering substituting sour cream for the cream cheese - don't! I tried that and the flavor was fine, but the sauce didn't thicken and then the salmon broke up - ending up with a pink mush. Thankfully I just made this for my husband and myself...not company. The flavor was very nice, though, so I bet the recipe's great as is.

Followed the recipe pretty much verbatim and it was wonderful--a keeper for my family. Served it with a loaf of crusty bread and a salad of romaine, pear, toasted walnuts, and blue cheese. The tested recipe icon means a lot to me when choosing a recipe from an unknown reader. I will look for this in the future.

Really good! I decided to substitute crumbled goat cheese for the cream cheese and liked it very much!

This was a great quick weeknight meal. I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out, but the texture was smooth and the flavor smoky. I also couldn't find pappardelle, but subbed in shells and it worked fine. I will say that my package of peas was 12 oz and I used all of it. This was way too many peas. I will probably use half as many and up the tomatoes. Along with other reviewers I used more salt and also more dill

I always expect this dish to turn out better than it does. It's decent but doesn't turn out like the special pasta it looks like it could be. I do like the way the cream cheese sauce comes out, but the smoked salmon doesn't shine the way I wish it would. Mushrooms might be nice & increase the veggie content. I can't find pappardelle, so I use linguine or fettuccine.

I gave it 3 stars as it is a good, solid recipe. I used costco's honey smoked salmon that we had leftover and added 2 cloves of crushed garlic to the onions near the end os the 4 minutes, I also used probably 5 - 6 oz of cream cheese and used Italian spices because I didn't,t have dill. It was pretty tasty and easy to put together. Give it a try.

This was great. Next time though I plan to increase the tomatoes, and probably the broth.
