Adding slightly more expensive ingredients, like salmon and avocado, to pasta makes them go a lot further without affecting flavor.

> 8 oz Nature's Promise® Whole Wheat Penne Pasta
> 4 tbsp Nature's Promise® extra virgin olive oil
> 1 (12 oz) pkg SteamReady frozen broccoli florets
> 1 lemon
> 1 clove garlic
> 1 avocado
> 1 tbsp salt-free seasoning
> 8 oz salmon fillet
> 1 (8 oz) bag triple-washed fresh spinach


Cook the pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain and mix with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Microwave broccoli according to package directions and set aside.
While pasta cooks, zest the lemon. Squeeze the juice from half the lemon and cut the other half into 4 wedges. Finely slice the garlic. Halve and pit the avocado, scoop out the flesh and cut into 8 slices.
Mix 1 tbsp of the oil with the salt-free seasoning and brush over the salmon. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the salmon for 8 min., turning halfway. Add the avocado slices to the pan and cook for a further 5 min. The salmon is done when you can flake it easily with a fork. Transfer salmon and avocado to a plate.
Heat the remaining oil in the skillet and stir-fry the garlic for 1 min. Add the spinach in handfuls and stir-fry 4 min. Add the cooked broccoli florets and stir-fry 2 min. Season with lemon juice, pepper and salt (in moderation).
Flake the salmon into large pieces and toss with the pasta, lemon zest and vegetables. Top with the avocado.
