Herbs On Saturday November Round Up

I'd like to say a big thank you to Karen for letting me host Herbs On Saturday this month, I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's entries and getting some new ideas. Sadly I didn't manage to fit in a recipe of my own but I will have one for a future entry. Check out Karen's page at Lavender & Lovage to find out where the next Herbs on Saturday is being hosted. There were 16 entries this month and one lucky person has also won a copy of the Best-ever Easy-to-use Herb Cookbook: Making the Most of Fresh Herbs in Your Cooking with 85 Delicious Recipes and 150 Photographs. The winner is announced at the end of the post.

First up we have an entry from Karen with her delicious sounding Creamy Salmon and Orange Pasta with Mixed Herbs.
