This Creamy Bowtie Pasta with Salmon Artichokes and Kale is super simple to make and can be served for dinner!
This recipe can serve a large family in a short period of time and also does well as leftovers or packaged into meal prep bowls for the weeks lunches ahead.
It is creamy and oh so satisfying this is sure to hit the spot if your craving something fancy for dinner tonight.
You can always add more salmon if desired, depending on your taste.
Just make sure to break it up as you see in the pictures below, that sure spreads the salmon flavor out nicely and enhances the dish but definitely doesn’t overpower it.
You can use just about any pasta for this recipe, however I really like the texture of the bowtie pasta.
This dish is very satisfying, both as a lunch dish or to serve as main meal.
You can prepare this dish with canned salmon also, however it really tastes that much better with fresh salmon.
You will want to start by cooking the salmon in a frying pan, once the pasta and kale has been cooked or during if your good at multitasking.
Once the salmon is cooked, take a spatula and break it up, pouring in one cup of either whole milk or %2 milk along with one cup of parmesan cheese and stirring to combine.
If you end up giving this a give it a try, I would love to know how you liked it. Bon Appetit!
MEAL PREP IDEA: Make enough to create a few meal preps bowls for the week ahead!
Imagine your work colleagues seeing this in your bowl for lunch.
I know my old work colleagues would have been so jelly! It sure looks fancy but really is easy to prepare.
