While my kids love pasta and could eat all day, every day, I really love my greens! And so this baked salmon and kale creamy pasta is probably one of the most loved meals around here, perfectly marring together the oh-so-creamy pasta with the lovely green crunch!
Also, it’s a perfect busy weekday meal. I usually bake my salmon the night before, and then I put it all together in less then 30 minutes!
And while my kids are still not very keen on kale and leek alone, they’ll eat it if it’s a part of a delicious pasta.
What you,ll need:
1 package of spaghetti or linguine
1 big leek
kale (1 package of pre-washed kale, or a big bunch)
3 garlic cloves
1 cup cream
salmon (a portion for two)
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Bake the salmon ( you could do it the night before, or you could even grill it), drizzled with olive oil, on 400F for around 20 minutes.
Over a big pan, heat olive oil, add leek cut in pieces, and cook it through. Add kale, and after around 3 minutes garlic. Add cream, and let it simmer on a low heat. Add salmon chunks, and pasta. Stir it all together and serve.
So simple, yet so delicious! Perfect weekday dinner. Enjoy!
