Salmon-Basil Pasta

Since we don’t have any Thanksgiving leftovers to speak of, and we have yet to grocery shop, dinner tonight was a “make something with what we have in the house” kind of meal. I went through the cupboards and the freezer and came up with this simple and delicious dinner. Adam even went back for thirds! Please pardon the not-so-great and nondescript looking photo. This was not a photogenic dinner!

NOT a great photo!

Simple Salmon-Basil Pasta


3 salmon filets (about 1 lb), cooked

1 tbsp. olive oil

6 or 8 frozen basil cubes or 1/2 tube basil paste or fresh chopped basil

2 tsp. garlic powder

1 lb angel hair pasta, cooked

1/4 c. Italian bread crumbs


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the cooked salmon filets and break into small bite sized chunks. Then add the basil, garlic, and cook about 1 minute. Add the pasta, stir well, then add the bread crumbs. Stir again and serve immediately, then top with parmesan cheese. This would be great with an add-in of any vegetable as well!

I’m off for the night to relax, watch movies, and possibly indulge in some dark chocolate… yum!
