Salmon Penne Pasta
This quick midweek meal has been shared with us by Kat from The Organised Housewife, and we think it is an amazing recipe! Using the delicious flavour combination of salmon and capers, we think it can easily be whipped up as an impressive meal for last minute guests.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "Even though we don't like capers we loved this recipe. Very tasty! I had a friend try this with her little girl who is a fussy eater...she ate three serves and gave it 99/100." - Sue
