Pasta and Norwegian salmon complement each other well, and the cheese sauce makes this dish extra tasty. This is a simple, everyday dish.
Cut the salmon into cubes approx. 2 cm in size, and season with a little salt.
Cook pasta as instructed on the package.
Add peas to the pasta for the last 3 minutes of its cooking time.
Heat the cream thoroughly in a pan, add grated parmesan and stir well. The cream must not cook after adding the cheese.
Drain the pasta when it's done, but keep a couple of tbsp of the cooking water.
Add salmon cubes and olive oil to the pasta and gently mix.
Cover the casserole with a lid and place on the stove on low heat for 5 minutes, until the salmon is done.
Cut basil into strips and add the cheese sauce and basil to the casserole with salmon, pasta and peas.
Serve with bread on the side.
Tip: Instead of parmesan, you can try a few tablespoons of pesto, or if you are looking for something that will really add relish to the dish, the parmesan can be replaced with a slightly smaller quantity of blue cheese. For a milder version you can use mild cheese.
