Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Herby Salmon with Pesto Penne.

As promised last week I’m going to share more savoury recipes after the abundance of sweets treats I posted in December.  Don’t worry though I’ll still be posting sweet recipes just mixed in with a few more savoury ones.

You can simplify this recipe by buying dairy free pesto which is readily available from your supermarket.
