No-Guilt Creamy Salmon and Pasta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Nif_H

The fat content in this creamy meal is nice and low. This is a dish that my kids always eat every last bite of! Serve with a salad to balance out the meal. I use Catelli Smart Pasta because it has more fibre than whole wheat pasta and has a nice texture. For the photos that I posted, I used Homemade Dilled Noodles and Weight Watcher Pesto Sauce. It was delicious. Enjoy!

This was great, and so easy to prepare. The pesto really adds a nice dimension! Thanks for sharing! Think Pink 2011.
