Smoked Salmon & Zucchini Cavatappi Pasta

Smoked Salmon & Zucchini Cavatappi Pasta

This is my favorite leftover salmon zucchini recipe. If you don't have leftovers, you can always use fresh or canned salmon. Simply mix pasta with salmon, zucchini and tomatoes for a refreshing dish!

Get ready for some amazing smoked salmon zucchini pasta. Gather your ingredients!

Chop the onions, peppers, and mince the garlic. 

Cook the pasta per the box directions until they are al dente.

Add the peppers and onions and cook for two minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until they pop.

Then add salmon and zucchini and cook until heated through (or cook until done if they aren't pre-cooked).

Add cream, basil, and cheese. Add the pasta and coat. If too thick add a little chicken stock or milk to thin. Then top with chopped parsley and serve!
