My husband is half Italian. His ancestors came to America and changed their Italian sounding name to something simple and settled and flourished here in the United States. My husband has memories growing up of hearing his family tell him – “Mangia” or “Eat!”
So this half Italian (half German) Navy man met me – half Native American (the other parts are German and Puerto Rican) woman and our crazy cross cultural marriage just seems to work. Most days. One thing my hubby and I can agree on, quite easily, is our love of food.

Did you know that we live on the water here in Western Washington, on the reservation that I grew up on my whole life? My people here are “Salmon People” – living off the Salish Sea, catching salmon and other fish for our livelihood for centuries. One thing we are blessed to have is salmon year round – because now our little reservation has a world famous fish cannery.
So, since my family loves food, I thought I’d share with you a favorite dish of ours – Pasta Primavera with Salmon.
Pasta Primavera with Salmon Ingredients:
- Fettuccine or Linguine Noodles
- Can of Salmon
- Bertolli Creamy Alfredo Sauce
- Vegetables (I used broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms, zucchini, and onion)
- Garlic Cloves
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Boil noodles according to package instructions.
- Cut up fresh vegetables into bite sized pieces.
- Sauté vegetables until tender.
- Add Alfredo sauce and can of salmon to the cooked vegetables.
- Stir all together until it boils.
- Add the sauce, salmon and vegetables on to the hot fettuccine noodles.
This is an easy recipe and so tasty. The Bertolli Creamy Alfredo is perfect for this recipe and the entire family loves it. Less time cooking and more time with family is exactly how I like my recipes.
