Fettuccine with Salmon and Vegetables


Salmon (about 2 cups, cooked and flaked)
16 oz. fettuccine
1 jar alfredo sauce
1 zucchini, sliced
2 red bell peppers, sliced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
(not pictured: butter, olive oil, fresh ground pepper)

Put some water on to boil for your fettuccine. Then, melt about 2 tablespoons of butter and 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a big pan.

Once it has melted, add your vegetables.

Stir these around and let them soften a bit.

Now, add the sauce and stir it together.

*Add the salmon.

Stir gently.

Put your fettuccine in boiling water and cook until it's al dente.

Drain the fettuccine and mix with the sauce.

Now, plate your dinner!

*Next time I make this I am going to do something else about the salmon. Serving it on top of the pasta-vegetable mixture would be better. Due to stirring, it ended up too incorporated and too spread out.

I have to admit I only ate about half of my fettuccine. The flavor was good but I was just so disgusted by this failure that I couldn't finish it. It did give me a good idea, though. I should try to make salmon puttanesca (in lieu of using tuna).

The best thing about cooking for me (besides eating) is learning and coming up with ideas. I think it looks great, and tuna puttanesca is a great idea!

It's probably because you used salmon...ICK!
