Kids' Favourite Salmon Pasta With Peas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This easy recipe is not just for kids. If you can get smoked salmon-flavoured cream cheese, use that instead of plain. It adds an extra dimension of flavour.

This is a great recipe for my son and even for us. I used small shell pasta. Instead of green onions, I used a red onion. I used dried parsley. Instead of throwing away the liquid of the salmon, I added it to the sauce to give it more taste. It was great. The whole dish is yummy. Thanks lrmgard :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
