My family loves trying new pasta recipes. Especially with seafood. Today, creamy salmon and dill angel hair pasta is on the menu. This recipe is easy enough to make on a weeknight, and impressive enough for a dinner party.

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!
