Nutritional Information

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Boil the pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander. Run under water until cool to the touch, to keep noodles from sticking together.
3. Rinse and finely chop green onions.
4. Drain canned salmon. In a large bowl, mix salmon, pasta, green onions, peas, yogurt, dill or parsley, salt, and black pepper.
5. Transfer pasta mixture to a 9-inch square baking dish.
6. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over pasta mixture. Bake 25-30 minutes, until bubbling and golden.

Chef's Notes

  • Try using 1 (12-ounce) can low-sodium tuna in water instead of the salmon.
  • Kick up the flavor by adding a pinch of ground cayenne pepper to the pasta mixture. Or, top with hot sauce when served.
