Creamy Salmon Spaghetti

I don't know why I never posted this before.  It's just so good!  I actually invented this recipe myself when I was pregnant.

  • Whole wheat spaghetti noodles (use enough for 4+ portions)
  • 500 g heavy cream
  • 3 portions of salmon
  • 150 g spinach leaves
  • ~1 cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese
What you do: 
  1. Preheat the oven to about 390 degrees F (200 C) and get the pasta water started.
  2. Grate black pepper over the salmon and bake in a glass dish until done.  It usually doesn't take very long (maybe 15 minutes).  Cut one in half to check if you are unsure.  Don't overcook!  When pasta water is boiling, add spaghetti and cook until done.
  3. While the salmon and pasta are cooking, get the sauce started: stir the grated parmesan cheese in with the heavy cream in a small pot.  Keep adding parmesan cheese to taste and stir until thoroughly melted and warm.  
  4. Wilt the spinach leaves in a frying pan with some butter, salt, and pepper.   Chop up the salmon into bite size bits. 
  5. Stir together spaghetti, cream sauce, salmon, spinach, and some black pepper.  
  6. Serve with steamed asparagus and enjoy!
