    Nif's Note:

    The fat content in this creamy meal is nice and low. This is a dish that my kids always eat every last bite of! Serve with a salad to balance out the meal. I use Catelli Smart Pasta because it has more fibre than whole wheat pasta and has a nice texture. For the photos that I posted, I used Homemade Dilled Noodles and Weight Watcher Pesto Sauce. It was delicious. Enjoy!

      This was great, and so easy to prepare. The pesto really adds a nice dimension! Thanks for sharing! Think Pink 2011.

      Oh my! I bought some salmon the other day, and purposely bought 1 fillet extra so that I could make this!I couldn't wait to try it, as salmon is almost my favorite fish. This is so delicious! Creamy and good, and it was gone so fast! lol You've got a winner here, Nif! I used store-bought pesto, and we BBQ'd the salmon. In fact, it was our first BBQ of the season! Thank you so much, Nif, this is going to be one of our keeper meals. Made for Go For the Green event at KK's forum.
