Quick and Easy Herb-Butter Penne with Salmon
Recipe by Our Best Bites

1 lb. salmon fillets
1/4 c. salted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
8 oz. penne pasta
Preheat grill to medium or the oven to 425. If cooking in the oven, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. When the water is boiling, add the pasta and cook according to package directions.
While the water is heating, rinse the salmon fillets and pat dry. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, parsley, oregano, and basil. Reserve 2 Tbsp. of the butter mixture. Spread the remaining 2 Tbsp. over the salmon. Place the salmon on the baking sheet and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the flesh is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the oven.
When the pasta is done cooking, drain and then return to the pan. Add the reserved butter, mashed tomato, and toss to combine. Place the pasta in individual bowls and then top with a piece of salmon. Serve immediately.
