Lemon Dill Salmon Pasta with Asparagus

Salmon pasta in pan

Look no further than this salmon pasta for a quick and easy meal. Made with simple ingredients and fresh asparagus for an easy weeknight dinner.

I’ve been making this recipe for years. It’s a go-to when I’m craving something light and fresh but too tired to cook.

This salmon pasta also reheats well, making it great to pack for lunch the next day. It’s also great cold!

Ingredients in bowls for salmon pasta

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Asparagus – Trim off any rough ends and chop into 1-inch pieces for easy roasting.
  • Pasta – Any type of pasta works well – rotini (which we use here), penne, small shells, bowties, etc.
  • Salmon – Canned salmon works so well here and makes this recipe super easy. Or you could cook a salmon filet and break it up into chunks.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Skip the kind in the green can and go for freshly grated for tons of flavor.
  • Seasonings – Fresh dill, lemon juice and garlic powder, plus salt and pepper to taste.

Just roast the asparagus, boil your pasta and throw everything together. It couldn’t be easier!
