Mar 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Another excellent recipe from Emeril! Both the salmon and spaghetti are full of flavor. I think the sun dried tomatoes add so much depth to the sauce.

Then once in the baking pan, I added a light layer of grated parmesan ...

This is a GREAT recipe! This was so easy to make and tasty with a few adjustments. I did not add salt, as the ham provided more than enough :) I used fresh thyme in place of dried thyme, so I used triple the amount of fresh to compensate. I added 4 oz more smoked sausage and I added 10 oz andouille sausage which provided quite a spicy kick. The r...
