Nutritional values

This pasta is packed with lean protein and omega-3 fatty acids from the salmon, which help support heart health.

If you'd like a bit more flavor, use use goat's cream cheese instead of cow's milk cream cheese. In winter, kale is a great substitute for spinach - the vegetables provide a lot of immune strengthening vitamin C.
