Damn, Mattie. Back at it again with another recipe post. Damn.

Yep, I like to cook. Mostly because I like to eat. I really like salmon. I really like pasta. So when you put both together, it's like hitting the jackpot. 

Cue one of my favorite dishes to make ever (I've made it while on Periscope about 5 times now): Salmon farfalle. And in case you're wondering, farfalle is fancy talk for bow tie pasta.

It's super easy and quick - 25 minutes tops. Basically, you're searing some salmon and veggies then tossing it with some farfalle and alfredo sauce. *mouth waters*


+ 1 lb of salmon
+ 16oz of farfalle
+ 2 cups of spinach
+ 1 cup of cherry tomatoes
+ 1 tsp of sea salt
+ 1 tsp black pepper
+ 1 tbsp of olive oil
+ 1 cup of Alfredo sauce
+ 1/2 cup of dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc)

Bring pot of salted water to boil; add farfalle. While pasta cooks, add olive oil to pan and sear salmon to your cooking preference. (I prefer medium well; more on the done side.) Once salmon is cooked, set aside, then cook spinach and halved tomatoes in the same pan with a little garlic for flavor.

Once pasta is cooked, drain and put back in warm pot. Set the stove to low heat. Break up salmon with a fork to bite size pieces. Add Alfredo sauce and stir. Then add wine (all or some of it, whatever your preference) to thin out the sauce. Then add salmon. Stir. Then add vegetables. Stir. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy with glass of wine.
