Pennette with salmon, peas and turmeric
EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
I recently discovered the use of turmeric (powder) in cooking and I must tell you that now I use it very often.
Besides having a very delicate flavor, it will also give a beautiful color to your dishes.
In addition to marrying well with almost any food, it is important to know that it also has many beneficial qualities such as:
• It is antioxidant.
• Helps detoxify the liver and the intestines.
• It has pain–relieving and anti–inflammatory effects.
• Strengthens the immune system.
• Prevents some types of tumors.
• Helps fight cholesterol and blood sugar.
• It is anti–constipation.
• It has antibacterial qualities.
They seem to me good enough reasons use it in our kitchens.
Today we will try it combined to pasta, salmon and peas.
PENNETTE WITH SALMON, PEAS AND TURMERIC
Ingredients for 4 people: 350 g penne (or any other short pasta you like) – a pack of salmon – 200 g peas (also frozen) – 2 tablespoons of turmeric – extra virgin olive oil – a few basil leaves – 1 clove of garlic
First, boil plenty of salted water.
Meanwhile, while the water comes to a boil, prepare the sauce by frying a clove of garlic in a little extra virgin olive oil.
As soon as it takes on color, add the salmon cut into strips and the peas.
Put the penne (or any other short pasta) in the water and, when they are cooked, set aside some cooking water and drain the pasta.
Pour the pasta into the sauce, add the turmeric and mix well.
Add a bit of the cooking water and stir for a few more minutes.
Decorate with the basil leaves.
Enjoy your meal!
