Quick Salmon Fettuccine


This is my go to cheap and cheerful Simple Salmon Pasta.  As you can see these are not expensive ingredients and because my cherry tomatoes, courgettes, lemons and flat leaf parsley all came from our garden it’s even better!

This is my first ever flat lay shoot on my new wooden backdrop.  It was taken at lightening speed while my one and a half year old sat in his highchair having a quick snack before dinner.  So I have probably broken all the cardinal rules on this and I will look back one day and go “oh dear god this is awful” but it’s all a learning curve and I’m working on it!!

So here it is……enjoy 🙂
