Pasta with Salmon and Asparagus


This is a great weeknight meal. Be sure to under bake the salmon as it will cook a little longer when you toss with the pasta and sauce.

2/3 lb salmon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried parsley
Salt and pepper
Olive oil spray

Preheat oven to 450. Spray the salmon and top with herbs. Bake 10 – 12 minutes. Cool for a couple minutes and the cut into bite size pieces.

Asparagus and pasta:
1 small bunch thin asparagus
8 oz
8 oz creme fraiche
1 oz grated Parmesan
Baked salmon
Salt and pepper
Zest and juice from 2 lemons

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook asparagus for 3 minutes, remove and chip into bite size pieces. Add pasta on the water and cook according to package.

In a 12 inch skillet, heat the remaining ingredients over low heat about 2 minutes before pasta is ready. Add pasta to the sauce and cook for 2 minutes.

Serves 4.
