A few recipes for your enjoyment

Salmon and Pasta with Asparagus and cherry tomatoes

This dinner is SO easy and one of our favorites. All you do is
cook the Salmon however you like. Pan fry, grill or bake it. I
bake mine in a little olive oil on tin foil over a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle it with a little cracked pepper, minced garlic, cayenne
pepper (for a little zip) and a little sea salt.
Cook up your pasta. I use whole wheat penne but you can
use whatever you like.
Throw in a few cherry tomatoes, grated parmesan. (I like
to use Asiago and Romano as well for more flavor.)
Olive oil and Lemon juice (fresh is best)
As much or as little as you want. Toss it all together and
throw the salmon on the top. YUMM-O (:
