You know those evening when you just want to use up a few leftovers but still want to eat well? We made this salmon and broccoli pasta bake on one of those evening.
It was so good!
We had everything in right down to the salmon in the freezer and decided to throw something together. This wasn’t meant to be a blog post but for some reason I took photos as my wife cooked the meal.
Let’s just say we will be making this salmon and broccoli pasta bake again really soon. This salmon and broccoli pasta bake was influenced by a dinner we had on a family holiday in Tuscany.
Like most Italian food, it was quite easy to guess the ingredients and that’s what we did.
The whole idea behind this quickly thrown together yet amazing meal is that you don’t need to prepare everything ahead of time.
That said, there is no reason why you couldn’t.
Get you broccoli chopped and your salmon defrosted if frozen. Get your other ingredients together too right down to the grating of the Parmasan.
Heck, you could even cook your broccoli and pasta and place it in the fridge.
The only thing I will say is to leave the sauce to the end. Bechamel sauce can be made ahead of time but it’s so much better when used fresh.
Salmon and broccoli go so well together. This is our version of an Italian classic.
You could of course try other fish and even other vegetables. If it sounds good, it probably will be.
So are you ready to give this recipe a try? I think you’re going to love this salmon and broccoli pasta bake!
In the photo above we used frozen salmon. We had it on hand.
If you can get freshly caught salmon all the better!
