    Altered ingredient amounts. Added extra chilli to give it a extra kick - looking forward to trying this with chicken as well.  -  04 Jan 2010


    Used different ingredients. Instead of parmesan, I used half a can of chopped tomatoes - made it more saucy and less pesto-y. Also added pepper to the salmon and used different pasta.  -  15 Sep 2009
