Quick Weeknight Pan Seared Salmon in a Cream Sauce with Pasta

In under 30 minutes, I can have a filling, healthy meal on the table filled with fresh healthy ingredients. It’s the perfect mix of weeknight convenience and restaurant-quality flavor that is sure to please.

I route through my pantry and grab some delicious, healthy options like whole wheat pasta and find some frozen peas, fresh mushrooms, and onion to add some texture and flavor.

Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water to just al dente. Drain and set aside.

Pat the salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Lay in the skillet and cook  7 – 10 minutes.

In the same skillet, stir in the mushrooms and onions.

Cook for 3 to 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the Prego sauce and the cream cheese to heat through. Mix so that the cream cheese melts.

Meanwhile, break the salmon up into bite-sized pieces and discard skin.

Stir the cooked pasta, peas and salmon into the sauce. Toss to combine.

Serve with fresh basil on top as a garnish and enjoy.
