Smoked Salmon and Zucchini Pasta

Do you ever get home from a huge grocery trip, put everything away, and then stare into your fridge and think to yourself…I bought all this food and yet I have no idea what to cook with it! That’s been me lately. This is what happens when you don’t plan your meals and go shopping when you’re hungry.

The good thing about it though, is that it forces you to come up with something using the items that you have, and sometimes the best meals are the ones where you just throw things together without any precise measuring or recipe to follow.

Smoked Salmon and Zucchini Pasta

What I had on hand: 2 Zucchini (sliced), 1 small red pepper (diced), 1 small onion (sliced thinly),  2 cups of baby spinach, garlic powder, roughly 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese, and some smoked salmon (sliced into thin strips), cooked fettucini pasta.

To assemble:

Saute your zucchini, red pepper, and onion with a little bit of olive oil and about a tsp of garlic powder. Meanwhile, cook your pasta (I used fettucini). When your zucchini has softened, throw in the baby spinach. Once the vegetables are cooked, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Toss the cooked vegetables with your pasta and  smoked salmon, and top with crumbled feta.
