Number of Servings: 6


    1/2 pound salmon fillet (1 piece)
    1 box (14-1/2-ounces) omega-3-enriched rotini pasta (such as Barilla)
    2 cups fat-free half-and-half
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 box (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/3 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped


1. Heat oven to 450. Coat a small baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add salmon to pan and bake at 450 for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, cook pasta following package directions. Drain and return to pot.

3. While pasta is cooking, whisk together half-and-half, cornstarch, salt, nutmeg and cayenne. Place in medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for 1 minute until sauce thickens. Add peas and simmer for an additional minute, until peas are heated through. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese.

4. Stir sauce into drained pasta. Remove skin from salmon and discard. Flake salmon into bite-size pieces and gently stir into pasta. Top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese and the nuts and serve.
