Salmon Pesto Farfalle

Salmon Pesto Pasta

One of my favorite pasta combinations is pesto, salmon and sun-dried tomatoes. This farfalle recipe is a quick go-to pasta recipe for lunch or dinner, especially for those busy week nights! The recipe is inspired by Barilla Farfalle and Pesto Sauce in my Degustabox this month.

Things have been busy for us lately. We are currently searching for a new home, which comes with it’s own bag of emotions. What a rollercoaster ride! In any case, we are learning a lot about the process and even ourselves. It has been a great experience so far, although I am hoping things will get settled soon. Living out of boxes is not fun!

Tomorrow Leila is turning 2 years old. I can’t believe it!!! She is getting so big, growing so fast…We are celebrating by spending the day at the beach and then BBQ in the evening. This year I made her a chocolate mousse and strawberry cake. I can’t wait to see her enjoy it 😀

I am thankful for this beautiful summer weather, and hope you are too.

Enjoy this easy, healthy salmon pesto pasta dish!
