canned salmon pasta

In case you haven’t noticed, quick and nutritious one pot meals are my thing. I love cooking but with a full-time job, contract work, a busy social life, an interview or two to prepare for (like this recent one), and trying to stay active — not to mention working on my blog — I have no time lately for elaborate meals. But that doesn’t mean I don’t eat delicious ones!

I love a nice bowl of pasta, but making a vegetable or a salad to go with it just seems like extra work sometimes. So I like to load my pasta with vegetables instead. I love zoodles — “noodles” made from zucchini — for this purpose. They are fun to eat and delicious. I like a 60/40 or so mix of regular whole wheat pasta to zoodles. This is a great way to add more vegetables to your usual pasta meal.

Do you ever get home from a long day at work, open a bottle of red wine and thinkĀ  “….lets just order take-outĀ  tonight” or “lets have cereal for dinner”?

Then this is the recipe for you! It’s fast, has simple ingredients (plus, you already have the wine open), and it’s just so darn tasty! There’s also just something simply wonderful about a steaming pot on the stove on a chilly autumn day.
