Creamy Salmon on Pasta

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sageca

This recipe is something my mother used to make using canned salmon; she served it on toast. I made this recipe with leftover cooked salmon filet. Feel free to add your choice of vegetables and maybe a bit of Parmesan cheese.

Very nice! I used a little extra celery for added veggies, used a 14 oz can of salmon, de-boned and well drained, and used potato flour to make it gluten free. I also use a little garlic oil since I didn't have garlic handy, and mixed in a little yogurt and cream cheese into the milk mixture for added creaminess. It turned out delicious! Thanks for providing this great framework recipe to play with.
