Tonight's Dinner Salmon Tetrazzini
8 ounces spaghetti or thin spaghetti, uncooked
1 can (14.75 oz.) or 2 cans (7.5 oz. each) traditional pack Alaska salmon OR 2 cans or pouches (6 to 7.1 oz. each) skinless, boneless salmon
1 Tablespoon margarine or butter
1 package (8 oz.) sliced mushrooms or 2 cans (4 oz. each) sliced mushrooms, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced or 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
2 Tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons flour
2/3 cup canned evaporated skim milk OR milk
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions or chives
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, drain salmon, reserving liquid. Break salmon into chunks; set aside. Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sherry, if desired, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add milk and reserved salmon liquid; simmer 5 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Stir in salmon and green onions; heat through. Drain spaghetti; arrange on four serving plates. Top with salmon mixture and cheese.
I got involved in dinner (and talking to Stefan) and only got a few photos off...

I'll be honest: This wasn't a favorite. I used to love Tuna Tetrazzini as a kid (the Hamburger Helper box kind!) but since being with Stefan my tastebuds have changed...I prefer spice! This had flavor, but no heat. That's what bothered me I think. So, I don't give it gold stars and I probably won't make it again.
To my dairy free and kosher readers: I bet you could use margarine and rice milk (don't use soy milk...it's sweet and would throw it off big time) and make this work. It was a quick meal. I think it took about 20mins total? Basically, as long as it takes to boil water and cook pasta!
