This particular pasta casserole was fun to build, as I loved how it looked from top, like honeycomb.

Soba Noodles With Salmon

Soba Noodles with Salmon in Ginger Sauce, one of those super quick meals that get ready in less than 15 minutes of cooking time. I have quite a few soba noodles recipes up on the blog. But, it’s never enough for me. The nutty buckwheat flavor, the gorgeous hew of brown and that firm texture makes soba noodles my absolute favorite of all. I prepare soba noodles quite often and always keep it simple. Tossed together with some greens or proteins in a zingy sauce.
