  • 1/2 pound salmon fillet (1 piece)
  • 1 14 1/2 - ounce box omega-3-enriched rotini pasta (such as Barilla)
  • 2 cups fat-free half-and-half
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 10 - ounce box frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees . Coat a small baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add salmon to pan and bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta following package directions. Drain and return to pot.
  3. While pasta is cooking, whisk together half-and-half, cornstarch, salt, nutmeg and cayenne. Place in medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for 1 minute until sauce thickens. Add peas and simmer for an additional minute, until peas are heated through. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese.
