Ingredients

  • 100g pasta shapes, such as rigatoni
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150g broccoli, broken into small florets
  • 100g fine green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 1 leek, trimmed and sliced
  • 4 x 100g salmon fillets
  • 2tbsp lemon juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 100g frozen garden peas, thawed
  • 500g jar original tomato pasta sauce

Swap the lemon juice in this recipe for orange juice to give the salmon a different flavour.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the grill.
  2. Cook the pasta shapes in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 mins, or according to pack instructions. At the same time, cook the broccoli, green beans and leek in a little boiling water until just tender, for about 5 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange the salmon fillets on the grill rack. Sprinkle them with lemon juice, season with black pepper and sprinkle with half the chopped chives.
  4. Grill for 6-8 mins, or until the flesh is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  5. Drain the pasta and vegetables then return them to the saucepan with the peas. Stir in the jar of pasta sauce and heat, stirring gently for 2-3 mins.
  6. Share the pasta between 4 warmed serving plates or bowls and top with a fillet of salmon. Sprinkle with the remaining chives and serve immediately.
