Salmon, sea shells and courgettes! – Easy Pasta Recipe


Did that thing where you buy some random things from the store and find the other half of ingredients in ya cupboard and somehow pray that a meal will come together.. 

Well it did.. luckily. 

And as you can tell by the title.. well it was hard to choose a title recipe name.

So I’ve called it (Salmon, Sea shells and courgettes) how’s that sound?

Well I can tell you that this tasted bloody delicious and I’m leaving it up to you to try it out yourself and well then you can thank me later. 

Full of flavours and a variety of colours, ooh it’s making my mouth water as I sit and type this. 

Anyway.. let’s get on with the recipe. 


1 courgette 

2 large handfuls of pasta shells

Smoked salmon (ready to eat)

Handful of peas or green beans (optional)

Pepper and salt

Table spoon of Oil



  • Fill up your saucepan with water just over half way and set it on the hob until it is boiling. 


  • Once the water has boiled put your pasta shells in and set a timer for 12 minutes, stir every so often. Whilst waiting, this is the time to chop up the courgette. Once your pasta has at least 3 minutes left, start to fry your courgettes (and peas/green beans if you want to add them too) in the frying pan with a little oil, turning regularly until cooked.



  • Once the pasta is cooked drain the water and place the pasta into a bowl, in this case the other day I made some for lunch so I placed the pasta into some lunch boxes below.


  • Once the courgettes look cooked enough, place them onto a plate and this is optional if you want to cut them up keep them as whole.


  • Place them into the pasta bowl and put a sprinkle of salt and pepper over. After apply the salmon on top and oh sweet jesus grab a fork and eat. 

I also decided to prepare some for my lunch ready for work the next day, if you’re going to do that, obviously let the courgettes and pasta cool completely before applying the salmon on and putting in the fridge for the next day.
