2424241I found this simple, nutritious, five-ingredient pasta recipe in Men’s Health and prepared it for my family last week.  Everybody loved it!

Salmon Pesto Pasta


  • 7 oz (about 1/2 box) whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cans (5 to 6 oz each) salmon in water, drained
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

How to Make it

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, add the spaghetti.  Cook until al dente (about 1 minute less than the package says).  Drain.  In the same pot, stir the pesto, tomatoes, salmon, and pasta together over medium-low heat until warmed, 2 to 3 minutes.  Plate and sprinkle with Parmesan.  Feeds 4
