Creamy salmon and spinach pasta

This is one of our quick, comforting, emergency pasta style meals. You know those days when the family is feeling a bit grumpy, you need to cook whilst amusing/holding/slinging a baby and have “mum I’m hungry” ringing in your ears… well this is what I tend to knock up for dinner. Cue the sound of silence…. save for chew and munch.

Packed full of omega 3’s, heart healthy fat, protein, folate, iron and veggies this meal will fill those hungry tummies with yummy goodness. We aim to eat oily fish once a week, so I am always looking for new ways to incorporate it into our dinners. This one is a BIG HIT.
