Creamy Pasta with Broccoli & Salmon

You can never go wrong with creamy pasta. This is a take on the classic "chicken, ziti, broccoli", instead of using chicken and ziti I substituted the chicken for salmon and used fusilli. The ridges in the fusilli are great for holding the creamy sauce.

Preheat oven to 375° and bring a pot of salted water to a boil.⁣

Prepare salmon by drizzling with olive oil, adding garlic, thyme, and seasonings. Slice limes and place on top of the salmon. Bake in the oven uncovered for about 15-20 minutes or until light pink and flaky.⁣

While the salmon is baking, add pasta to boiling water and cook according to the pasta instructions. Place a separate large pan on medium heat and add olive oil. Once heated add garlic, broccoli, and sauté until the broccoli is softened about 5-7 minutes. Add seasoning and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Next, sprinkle flour on the broccoli and cook for another minute. Add heavy cream and broth. Allow to reach a boil, and let it simmer until it begins to slightly thicken. Finish the pasta by adding chopped up salmon and parmesan and combine. ⁣
