Pasta, pasta, pasta, O how I love pasta. Once I started my weight loss journey, I knew that I had to give up pasta because of the carbohydrates. Healthy alternatives, like whole wheat pasta and zucchini noodles, has been helping tame those cravings. Now I present to you healthy salmon pasta. Instead of a cream base I used Greek yogurt. This dish was surprisingly so yummy.
