This is my favorite pasta dish for a number of reasons. It ticks all the right boxes in term of nutrition, is seriously tasty, and, best of all, it couldn't be easier to make! The salmon provides plenty of omega-3s, which are nicely complemented by the omega-6's found in the olive oil. The spinach, parsley and tomato provide great sources of antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin A. Fresh tomato is also rich in potassium, parsley in vitamin K, and spinach in iron.
To add to the mix, lemon juice also packs a punch of vitamin C, and by using whole grain pasta you get three times the amount of fiber compared to regular spaghetti.
