We all want to cook a healthy, satisfying family dinner, but it can be hard – especially when faced with limited ingredients in the pantry. If you have a can of salmon and breadcrumbs, this Salmon Mornay Pasta Bake is the perfect solution! It’s packed full of flavourful ingredients like tinned salmon, mustard and breadcrumbs that are likely already sitting in your pantry. 

You could add corn and carrots to the creamy sauce if you wish. 

I top with Panko Breadcrumbs for the extra crunch, although you could use regular breadcrumbs.
