The fat content in this creamy meal is nice and low. This is a dish that my kids always eat every last bite of! Serve with a salad to balance out the meal. I use Catelli Smart Pasta because it has more fibre than whole wheat pasta and has a nice texture. For the photos that I posted, I used Homemade Dilled Noodles and Weight Watcher Pesto Sauce. It was delicious. Enjoy!

  6. Add pasta to salmon mixture and gently toss.
