Creamy Salmon Pasta

So the summer holidays are nearly over, it's not long until we are back to school, and its definitely time for me to get back on the MyFitnessPal wagon! To try and get things started with a bang, I wanted to make something new. I served up this Creamy Salmon Pasta dish, which is also syn free on Slimming World, and comes in at around 500 calories (less if you're not as big of a pasta monster as I am!) 

The creamy sauce is achieved with fat-free Greek yoghurt, which gives it a really nice tang. I personally like the Liberte brand because I find it thicker and creamier than others, but any plain, fat-free yoghurt would work. Mixed together with stock, veg, salmon and your favourite type of pasta, it makes a quick and delicious dinner. I could easily have eaten a second bowl, but that would have defeated the object! It has definitely earned a place on our regular dinners list.

Creamy salmon pasta is around 500 cals (depending on how much of a pasta fan you are) and is syn-free on Slimming World if you use spray oil.

4 salmon fillets (skinless and boneless)
400g pasta
100g frozen peas
1 red pepper
1 onion
1 clove of garlic, crushed
75ml vegetable stock

2. While the pasta is cooking, chop the onion finely and chop the red pepper and the salmon into medium chunks. 
3. Soften the veg in a large frying pan on a medium heat along with the garlic. Then add the salmon chunks.
4. Immediately afterwards, pour in the vegetable stock.
5. Leave to simmer for 4 minutes to allow the salmon to poach.
6. Pour the frozen peas into the boiling water to cook for the remaining time with the pasta.
7. Take the frying pan off the heat and add the yoghurt. Stir through.
8. Drain the pasta and peas and then return them to the saucepan.
9. Add the contents of the frying pan to the pasta and stir through, making sure the pasta is well coated.
