Lemon Dill Salmon Pasta Salad with Asparagus in pan.

Lemon Dill Salmon Pasta With Asparagus

Amanda Keefer - Managing Director Healthy Family Project.
Look no further than this salmon pasta for a quick and easy meal. Made with simple ingredients and fresh asparagus for an easy weeknight dinner.
I’ve been making this recipe for years. It’s a go-to when I’m craving something light and fresh, but too tired to cook.
Best of all, this salmon pasta also reheats well, making it great to pack for lunch the next day. It’s also great cold!
