Favorite food; so many to choose


If I had to pick a favorite food it would probably be salmon, no wait, maybe pasta, or cheese, or just seafood in general or veggies, Let’s face it, we all have more than one favorite food, so if I had to pick one, how about salmon since I make it quite often, usually grilling it, it’s easy and fast and good for you too!

And what’s better than eating one of my favorite foods; making a recipe that has a couple of my favorite foods all together, salmon, cheese, veggies and pasta! That’s even better, so here are some great recipes that I am going to add to my favorite list, and with grilling season upon us I am sure I will be making these often.

Creamy Salmon Linguine

Extra Pesto Grilled Salmon gives this creamy pasta toss a luxurious taste and texture. We love it as is, but you could easily sub in any veggies you have on hand for the broccoli. —Jacob Kitzman, Seattle

  1. We are trying to eat healthy and I really love salmon. This dish offers all the healthy things we are looking for, so I have to try this soon.

    • Glad you like the salmon with pasta recipe, try it and let me know what you think, What I also like about it is that you can add any kind of veggie that you like. You can also lighten up the Creamy Salmon Linguine with canned milk instead of heavy cream and olive oil instead of butter.
