Ingredients

  • 4 oz. salmon
  • 6 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • 2 oz. pasta of your choice, I like rotini or gemelli for this recipe
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T. lite butter
  • 4 leaves fresh basil, coarsely chopped
  • garlic salt
  • salt
  • pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • butter cooking spray
  • 1/2 oz. fontina curls

Directions

  • Cook the pasta according to package directions. While the pasta is cooking, sautee the spinach with the minced garlic, butter spray and seasonings and grill the salmon with just a sprinkle of garlic salt. Put spinach in a serving dish, top with cooked pasta and then grilled salmon. Melt butter and basil together and pour overtop. Shave curls of fontina atop the basil butter using a veggie peeler. Then I like to pop it back in the oven for just a minute to melt the cheese and voila! 615 calories per serving.

Notes

This recipe is so simple and soooo delicious! It is healthy and filling without being heavy. I could eat this everyday! These proportions serve one but the recipe easily doubles, triples, whatever!
