Creamy salmon pasta is among my favorite things to cook. It can be simple or elaborate. There are so many types to choose from. My family’s favorite? Angel hair, hands down!
My family loves trying new pasta recipes. Especially with seafood. Today, creamy salmon in pasta is on the menu. This salmon pasta recipe is easy enough to make on a weeknight, and impressive enough for a dinner party.
Creamy salmon pasta is amazing, and perfect for Fall.
If you can find fresh dill, by all means use it. I was in the produce section yesterday morning looking for fresh dill, somehow they were all out. Just by chance, I glanced over to where they have potted herbs. There, hiding among the basil, and chives was a lonely dill plant waiting for me. SCORE!
Finally, if you want to spread the love, go ahead and share my salmon in cream sauce pasta post with your friends and family. Pin it, tweet it, or simply leave me a comment; I would really love to hear from you.

It is a prefect blend of tangy, creamy, and tart to balance out the richness of the pasta dish.
