Salmon I'm-afraid-so

This is the name my kids gave to this dish because they said "I'm afraid of what mom's gonna put in our food next!" ...They actually like this dish very well. Even eating seconds! And it is like Alfredo, sorta. I baked 2 salmon fillet pieces.
Then flaked them apart with a folk.
(You could use canned as well, or chicken, or shrimp...or even tuna!)
Most Frugal Sauce
I made a white sauce;
with several cups of milk, salt, pepper, 1/4 cup butter, a couple of shakes of basil and parsley, 1 cup of Parmesan cheese, and 4 T cornstarch beat into about 2 cups of water, then stirred in and heated until thickened.

Not-So-Frugal Sauce
In 1/4 cup butter saute1 medium onion and 2 cloves minced garlic
Add 16 oz cream cheese and half-cup of evaporated milk, stir until melted.
Stir in: 1 T basil, 3 to 4 turns of cracked peppercorns, 2 1/2 t salt, 3/4 cup Parmesan, 1 1/2 cups of milk, 1 1/2 cups half and half.
Toss in meat, if using.
Stir until thick and remove from heat.
 Pour over cooked angel hair.

(*This usually makes enough for supper one night and lunch for the next day!)

There's more than one way to get them to eat salmon!!!
Luke 24:42  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
