This easy salmon pasta recipe is great for busy weeknights. It's simple, quick to make, and you can use the leftovers for lunches and dinners throughout the week.

Salmon cooks so quickly. By the time the pasta is ready, so is the salmon and we're ready to combine and serve. Easy peasy.

This recipe is in regular rotation at our house because it's so easy to keep frozen peas on hand, along with pasta and either fresh or frozen salmon.

First, season and bake the salmon. While that's cooking, prepare the pasta and peas.

In a skillet, saute onions in butter until softened. Add in salt, pepper and wine (if using). Simmer to reduce.

Gently fold in cooked pasta & peas, flaked salmon, dill, and lemon juice.
