- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 pound salmon skinless and boneless – one piece or multiple pieces
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 8 ounces uncooked pasta – I use Campanelle
- 1 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 c. heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 ounces of baby spinach
Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the pasta until al dente.
Step 2: In butter, saute the onion for about 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat. Then, add the salmon and continue to cook for 5 to 7 minutes more, breaking the salmon into flakes. Next, add the spinach and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until wilted.
Step 3: To the salmon, add the heavy cream along with Parmesan, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir well and bring everything to a gentle simmer before adding the cooked pasta and chopped parsley. Mix well until incorporated.
Step 4: Serve the salmon pasta with spinach right away garnished with some parsley and grated Parmesan. Enjoy!
