Cheesy Pasta Alfredo with Salmon

Cheesy Pasta Alfredo with Salmon

16 oz. jar Alfredo sauce
1 pound salmon fillets
1 lemon, juiced
1 TBSP vinegar
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
16 oz. package uncooked rotini pasta
6 oz. package Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat Alfredo sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Place salmon in baking dish. Mix lemon juice and vinegar in small bowl and pour over salmon. Season with basil and parsley.
Bake salmon 15 minutes in oven or until flaked with a fork. Remove from heat and break into bite sized pieces.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and place in a large bowl. Gently toss the salmon, pasta and Alfredo sauce together. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

This was actually pretty good! The salmon especially with the seasonings made a really nice flavor to the pasta. I also added mushrooms (and I had planned on adding broccoli too, but forgot to actually add it in!), and that was tasty too. Other than using a different pasta (I like to mix it up), the recipe is good as is!
