Smoked Salmon Spaghetti with Bechamel Sauce


Smoked Salmon Spaghetti with Light Bechamel Sauce

In need of a delicious and quick dinner? You can’t go wrong with pasta, am I right?!
This smoked salmon spaghetti with light bechamel sauce is delectable and light on the budget. It’s refreshing, full of flavour and requires a few ingredients. It’s perfect to make on those nights when you want to surprise your family, friends or guests with a time-friendly, impressive meal. I love that this recipe uses fresh ingredients and, best of all, it’s quick and easy to make. A fresh side salad would be a great addition to the pasta or top with some microgreens — yum!
You can even double the recipe at the start of the week and use leftovers for lunch the next day. Or freeze a large batch for another night when time is of the essence. Trust me, this recipe will leave you craving more so go ahead and make extra!
