Salmon, Courgette and Tomato Linguine

I seem to have had a bit of a pasta heavy week this week! I saw this recipe in The Metro one morning and knew when courgette season came around that I had to make it. It is really tomatoey! And I found boiling the salmon a bit weird but the recipe really works.

Salmon, Courgette and Tomato Linguine (from The Metro)
(Serves 2)

350g linguine
2 salmon fillets
1 onion, finely sliced
1 courgette, diced into 1cm cubes
3 garlic cloves, chopped
100g tomato purée
salt and pepper

Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook according to packet instructions adding the salmon for the last 7 mins.

Meanwhile put a little oil in a frying pan and add the onion and courgette for 5-6 mins, until soft. Add the garlic, stirring for another min.

Squirt in the tomato purée, season with salt and pepper and keep the sauce moving around the pan, stirring occasionally. 

Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water. Flake the salmon and then mix the past and salmon into the vegetables. Keep mixing until the pasta is heated through and covered in tomato. Serve with Parmesan.
