Pasta with salmon

I threw this together for dinner last night and it turned out awesome. It was so quick to make and everyone loved it. It made enough for our family of four, DH had seconds, and I still had leftovers for lunch today. Just thought I'd share.

1/3 cup Olive oil
3-6 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
12 oz uncooked pasta (I used angel hair because it's what I had on hand, but I think something sturdier like fettuccini or penne would have been better)
8 oz smoked salmon, flaked
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
Parmesan cheese to taste

In a sauté pan over medium heat, combine oil, garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes and tomatoes. Stir occasionally and keep an eye on the garlic. You want it to get golden, but not burnt.

At the same time, cook your pasta to al dente. Drain. Add in the seasoned oil, salmon and peas. Toss. Garnish with Parmesan.

Enjoy. The leftovers were fantastic cold as a pasta salad for lunch today. There is a bit of spice to the oil. If you family isn't huge fans of spice, consider cutting the red pepper in half the first time you try this.

Re: Pasta with salmon

It's always so fun to accidentally find a new meal your family enjoys!!
I do something similar to this, but add more veg (broccoli, peppers, mushrooms)...whatever is nearing the end of it's life in the veg drawer. It's usually a hit here, too.
