Ingredients

  • 2cups whole wheat penne pasta
  • 2 green onions
  • 14 1/2oz. canned pink salmon in water
  • 1cup frozen peas
  • 1cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2tsp. dried dill or dried parsley
  • 1/4tsp. salt
  • 1/4tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander. Run under water until cool to the touch, to keep noodles from sticking together.
  3. Rinse and finely chop green onions.
  4. Drain canned salmon. In a large bowl, mix salmon, pasta, green onions, peas, yogurt, dill or parsley, salt, and black pepper.
  5. Transfer pasta mixture to a 9-inch square baking dish.
  6. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over pasta mixture. Bake 25–30 minutes, until bubbling and golden-brown on top.

Recipe Notes

  • Try using 1 can (12 oz.) low-sodium tuna in water instead of salmon.
  • Kick up the flavor by adding a pinch of ground cayenne pepper to the pasta mixture. Or sprinkle hot sauce on top when serving.
