Penne Pasta with Salmon

Description: To honor St. Peter, the fisherman who traveled to Rome, we celebrate a fish and pasta recipe that will definitely help us celebrate our faith. 

Serves: 4-6 People

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cool Time: 15 minutes 



½ lb Salmon, Diced

½ medium sized Onion, Diced

1 cup Ricotta Cheese

1 Tbsp Lemon Zest & Juice

2-3 Tbsp Parsley, Minced

1-2 tsp Thyme, Chopped 

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

¼ cup Dry White Wine 


How To Make:

  1. Boil water and cook pasta, according to the instructions on the box. Before draining the pasta, reserve 1 cup of starchy pasta water and put aside. 
  2. Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat and saute onion until translucent for approximately 1 minute.
  3. Add salmon and cook for 1-2 minutes. 
  4. Add the white wine and deglaze the pan. Then, saute the onion and salmon in white wine for 1-2 minutes. If the pasta is not yet cooked, turn off the heat to prevent overcooking the onion and salmon. 
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the parsley, thyme, lemon zest and juice, ricotta cheese, salt and pepper. Mix it all together. 
  6. When the pasta is cooked, add all of it to the pan with the onion and salmon. Then, add the ricotta cheese combination to the pan, as well. 
  7. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. 
  8. Season with salt and paper, as needed.
  9. Depending on the desired texture, add a little starchy water (1 -2 tablespoons at a time) to the pan. Mix together and cook over low to medium heat until all the ingredients are fully integrated and the ricotta cheese has melted evenly.
