Salmon & Pea Pasta

As the weather warms up and we spring into... well.. Spring, I've been trying to come up with quick & easy recipes that are perfect for a picnic or a sunny day. This pasta dish can be served warm, as an impressive midweek dinner, or chilled as a perfect picnic pasta salad. The sauce has the illusion of being rich and creamy, even though its dairy-free and uses hardly any mayo (2 tsp for 4 servings!). I love the small shell pasta, because the peas and sauce fill up each little piece!

If you happen to have canned salmon lying around, and you don't know what to do with it, you could totally add it to this dish in lieu of the fresh salmon. If you're not a salmon fan, try some pole-caught tuna, or maybe some shrimp/prawns (cook it the same way as the salmon above - I love roasted shrimp!).
