This is adapted from a recipe from American Institute for Cancer Research. I simplified it a little and made a few changes, but the health benifites are about the same.

2 quarts water
4 ounces dry whole-wheat spiral pasta
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large red onion
1 package (3 ounce) sun-dried tomatoes
1 teaspoon oregano powder
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 can (15 ounce) cannellini beans - drained
1 can (6 ounce) salmon - drained
1 tablespoon capers
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley (optional)

  1. Using a 3 quart saucepan, heat water to boiling.
  2. Add pasta to water, reduce heat, and cook according to package instructions, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Drain pasta.
  4. In the same sauce pan, maintain low heat and add oil, onion, tomatoes, oregano, and red pepper.
  5. Toss gently.
  6. Add beans, salmon, and capers.
  7. Toss again, breaking up the salmon.
  8. Cook until heated through.
