Back to spaghetti, oh yes! Whenever l seem to run out of ideas what to cook, a packet of spaghetti always comes to the rescue. And never lets me down. I could honestly cook spaghetti every single day without getting bored of them. Sounds familiar? You can admit it, no one would ever judge you, spaghetti are too delicious. And cheap, as a matter of fact. And those who moan about carbs should know that they are essential to a healthy body and a happy mind. l would rather eat a big bowl of spaghetti and be happy, than have only leaves and be miserable. A balanced meal is far more efficient in the long run than those diets who promise you eternal beauty and a slim body.
This recipe might use cream, which could be seen as naughty, but it also has salmon, which is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and a whole range of vitamins and minerals. So, there you go! Speaking of salmon, have you tried Pasta salad with salmon? It’s absolutey delicious. And great for a nice hot summer day. I do love salmon, it’s my favourite fish, and love how quickly it can be cooked. The best way of cooking it is baking in the oven, l wouldn’t fry it, it loses its yumminess.
And what goes better with salmon than lemons and dill? Nothing else, really, the flavours are divine. They balance well the richness of the cream, bringing a fresh touch to the dish, which could otherwise feel a tad heavy. But it’s so delicious. I have tried the alfredo sauce before, but with chicken, I have a lovely recipe here: Chicken alfredo pasta with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach, and I licked my fingers clean after having a rather generous portion, so I knew there will be a second time. I am glad I chose salmon though, it is the perfect fish to go with the alfredo sauce. What a delish!
