Salmon Spaghetti with Basil and Sun-dried Tomatoes

Salmon Spaghetti with Basil and Sun-dried Tomatoes

I love salmon, unfortunately we don’t get wild Alaskan salmon here but I’m happy to find it in a can. I prefer using it than fresh ones when adding to pasta dishes because it is very convenient and makes cooking easier and quick. Pasta dishes like this is what I make when I don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen, especially now, that it’s summer..my whole kitchen feels like a furnace.

Here’s the recipe, let me remind you to just use it as a guide as I don’t really measure ingredients per se when cooking, especially, pasta dishes. They are really easy, even if you are not a good cook, yet..just give it a try and follow your taste bud :)

Happy Cooking! God Bless
