Lemon Garlic Salmon Pasta

A friend had made salmon pasta a long long while ago and I had been meaning to try it since then.  On the nights kids have basketball practice I try to make something quick and simple and so pasta it was for dinner today … tossed with some protein.  This is a super simple recipe and takes less than half hour to make and kids loved it.  So, it is a keeper and what’s not to love about pasta and fresh basil!  I made the following changes to the recipe:

  • I used only 8 oz of pasta and two salmon filets with skin on
  • The filets I had were pretty thin so I only baked them for 15 mins and peeled off the skin after baking
  • I added 1/3 cup of peas to the last 2 minutes of cooking pasta
  • Skipped zest since the kids are not crazy about it
  • Heated olive oil and sauteed garlic and 3 cups of baby spinach leaves* before tossing with pasta

*Can easily add up to 5-6 cups of spinach leaves
