Creamy Salmon with Peas & Pasta Recipe

Creamy Salmon & Peas with Pasta is the perfect dish for a cook in a hurry. It can even be prepared on a weeknight, since itís truly one of those meals that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes (even without a television crew, a sous chef or two, and assistants like the television chefs have).
Once you get the water boiling for the pasta, there is minimal chopping; the actual cooking takes about 10 minutes, so itís done as soon as the pasta is ready. If you get interrupted (unlike television chefs), the pasta can be kept warm up to 30 minutes by draining it in a colander, putting the colander back into the pan that the pasta was cooked in, and putting the lid on; there will be enough heat from the pan and the pasta to keep the temperature up for a short time.

To save more time, purchase garlic and onions that have already been chopped; both are available in the produce department of most grocery stores. Itís also helpful to purchase a piece of salmon that has already had the skin removed.

All you need for a complete meal is some good, crusty bread which can be picked up at a local bakery on your way home from work.
