The core of this pasta sauce is the smoked salmon – one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Not only is this ingredient great for the heart, it can also reduce inflammation in your joints, and is therefore great for preventing and aiding arthritis. Omega-3 is also said to improve your memory and combat issues like depression, ADHD and Alzheimer’s. This pasta sauce is so easy and takes less 10 minutes to cook. It is a great alternative to popular cream-based pasta sauces, and is packed with healthy ingredients.
4oz smoked salmon
1/4 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2oz baby spinach leaves
5 cherry tomatoes, cut into halves or thirds depending on their size
3 mushrooms, button mushrooms – finely sliced
