But just like any good Wandercooks Creation, the thing we love most about Salmon Pasta is that it’s so flexible. Don’t have (or even like) broccolini? Why not add a handful of baby spinach or peas instead? Feel like playing with that pasta texture? Try it with your favourite fettuccini, linguine or penne, and see which you like best!

Really, you’re only limited by your tastebuds’ creativity and the contents of your fridge… ????
