1 (416g) or 2 (213g) cans red or pink wild Alaska salmon
250g pasta shapes
100g fresh spinach
1 (350g) jar tomato and sweet pepper pasta sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (125g) balls mozzarella cheese, sliced
50g fresh breadcrumbs
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Drain the canned salmon, discarding the liquid. Remove any skin and bones, if wished, then break the salmon into chunks

2) Cook the pasta in plenty of lightly salted boiling water for about 10 to 12 minutes, or according to pack instructions, until tender. Add the spinach for the final minute of cooking time, allowing the leaves to wilt. Drain well, then transfer to four individual baking dishes.

3) Share the pasta sauce and salmon chunks between the dishes, stirring gently to mix. Season with a little salt and pepper.

4) Arrange the mozzarella slices over the pasta, then sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until browned and bubbling

Cook's Tip: Use your choice of pasta sauce, whichever is your favourite.
