Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F Spray a 9x9" pan or 2.5 quart casserole with non-stick spray.
  2. Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water until almost al dente. Drain and place in prepared pan. Toss with a small amount of olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking.
  3. While pasta is cooking, saute celery and onion in butter over medium-high heat until onion is tender. Reduce heat to low. Stir in flour, cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Whisk in hot milk. Cook for 5 minutes, whisking constantly until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir dill, lemon zest, salt, pepper, salmon and yogurt. Pour over pasta and stir to combine.
  5. Top with croutons and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
