Mediterranean Salmon Pasta

In place of the corn starch, stir in the feta at the end, and sprinkle a little on top too, at the very end. This will help make a thick-ish sauce, you may need a touch of extra chicken stock, and make the dish light, healthy and clean...in terms of flavor, texture and a creamy texture. Then you'll have something delicious you can be proud of.
