Susan came to visit me in my new home in Southern California in October and we made this pasta dish together one night for dinner. It's her son, Aaron's favorite and now is a favorite of my kids too. I love this recipe because it's the best use of left over grilled salmon from the night before and it's an awesome one pan meal!
1/2 lb Pasta any type, cooked aldente
2 filets (1/2 lb) of cooked salmon, grilled, baked or poached
1 Small Onion chopped
1 Jar of Pasta Sauce
1/4 cup cream cheese
Fresh Parsley, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
1/3 cup frozen peas (optional)
Saute onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 1-2 minutes until soft. Add 1 jar of pasta sauce to pan to warm through. Melt cream cheese into sauce. Add red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Once cream cheese is fully combined you can flake the salmon into the sauce and stir to incorporate. If you would like to add green peas this is the time to add those in. Heat sauce over med heat for about 3-5 minutes until hot.
Pour cooked pasta into a large bowl or platter and pour sauce over top. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and serve immediately.
