Pasta with salmon and sundried tomato sauce

Pasta with salmon and sundried tomato sauce

This is a quick recipe – you prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking so it is ready in just 15 minutes.  It is delicious thanks to the contrast between the fresh salmon and tangy sundried tomatoes, and beautiful thanks to its bright red and pink colours.

Tips

Instead of linguine you can use other long pasta, such as spaghetti, fettucce or noodles. You can replace tomato pulp with the same amount of cherry tomatoes or other ripe tomatoes.
