Salmon and Spinach Pasta
« on: February 29, 2012, 01:07:38 pm »
Salmon and Spinach Pasta
Serves 4

Ingredients:
2-3 large fresh tomatoes, halved
2 garlic cloves
1 onion, halved
2 tbsp olive oil
1 salt-reduced stock cube (chicken or vegetable)
550g water
Pepper, to taste
250g large pasta
210g tin pink salmon, drained and roughly flaked
Generous handful (or 2) chopped spinach or baby spinach leaves, fresh or defrosted
Grated parmesan cheese, to serve, if desired
 
Method:
1. Process tomatoes, garlic and onion for 3-5 seconds/speed 7, depending how chunky you would like it.
2. Add oil and cook for 2 minutes/100C/speed 1.
3. Add stock cube, water and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes/100C/speed 1.
4. Add pasta. Cook for length of cooking time required for pasta + 1 minute/100C/reverse + speed soft. Add salmon in the last 1-2 minutes of cooking time, stirring through gently with spatula.
5. Pour into thermoserver, add spinach and stir through. Allow to stand for 5 minutes to thicken up.
6. Serve with steamed vegetables.

Notes:
I had cold for lunch the next day, and it was REALLY yummy like that too :-)

I would have added fresh button mushrooms with the spinchach in the last few minutes of cooking, but unfortunately I didn't have any. Perhaps someone could try this and let me know how it goes? Mushrooms have a high water content, so it might make the dish more saucy (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!)

You can substitute tuna for salmon.

SuzieG - I made this last night and added mushrooms it very, very nice. Re reading the recipe right now I forgot to add Parmesan and I think that would have been perfect. I've got left overs today so I will add it on. Great recipe thank you!

CP - Lovely easy tasty recipe Amy. Sliced up some mushies as per your suggestion and yes, would do this again. Only chopped the tomatoes at the beginning for 2 secs / speed 6, as I like things fairly chunky and  it broke down just a bit further over the course of cooking.  Great meal when you can't be bothered going to a lot of trouble, yet want something healthy. We served it with salad, and next time will have some garlic bread. Thx Amy

I made my pasta for lunch today. Yum yum ;D
I added a good sprinkling of dried dill, and also stirred the salmon through in the last two minutes so it was a bit chunkier. After it was cooked, I poured it into the thermoserver and stirred through the spinach leaves so they didn't get stuck around the TMX blades. I'm going to change this in the recipe because it worked much better ;)

This looks really yummy, Amy.  Might make it for dinner tomorrow in belated honour of your birthday.  Hope you've had a very happy day.
