Salmon Pasta with Pesto Cream Sauce
8 oz. pasta cooked (I used GF)
2 T. olive oil
1 12 oz. salmon fillet
1/2 tsp salt divided
1/4. tsp pepper divided
3/4 c. heavy cream
2 oz. cream cheese
1/2c. prepared pesto
2 tsp. lemon herb seasoning
While pasta is cooking, heat oil in skillet and sprinkle
salmon with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp pepper
Cook salmon 5 minutes on each side.
Transfer to a plate and flake into large pieces with a fork.
Heat another skillet over med high heat.
Add cream and simmer 3 minutes until slightly thickened.
Reduce heat and add cream cheese and pesto,
whisking in until smooth.
Stir in pasta, cook 1 minute, stirring frequently.
gently stir in salmon and add seasonings.
This was super good and tasty.
It would be great with chicken breasts also.
I served it with asparagus but the original
recipe called for 1 c. peas to be added
with the pasta into cream sauce.
That would be tasty too.
I made non GF pasta for Kirk
and he really liked it also.
