We are now in shutdown, day 4, I must admit it feels longer. I am cooking more, eating more, cleaning more, gardening more :).
Also feels like we eating more for lunch and dinner. I wanted to share this recipe because it came out better than I expected!
1/2 packet smoked salmon
1/2 packet penne pasta
1/2 cup white wine (I used what I had which was a chardonnay)
1 bunch Fresh parsley (for cooking and to throw in afterwards)
Few sprigs fresh thyme
1 green chilly or 1/2 teaspoon chilly flakes
1 tablespoon butter
1 Red onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon crushed pepper
1 cup of the water you boiled the pasta in
Boil your water for your pasta, add 2 teaspoons of salt. Once it starts boiling add your pasta and cook according to instructions on the packet.
Add oil to a frying pan. Make sure that it is a big pan because you will add the pasta to it in the end.
Add your chopped onions and fry until translucent.
Add you crushed garlic and keep stirring. Add your green chilly, butter.
Keep mixing. Add the white wine. Let it cook out. Add rest of the herbs and keep mixing. (Be sure to leave some parsley to add to the dish after it is cooked).
Add the smoked salmon, you can fry it a little which I like doing. Break it in the pan. Add your pasta. And give it a good stir, each pasta should be coated with the herbs. Add the rest of the parsley.
Hope you like it as much as we did. We had this with garlic bread and of course a glass of white wine :)
