  • 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.
