what's for dinner : salmon & broccolli pasta

I normally don't blog about food here.  As I have my own space for all the recipes on my other blog.  But since I am still in two minds about merging my recipes into this blog or not, I thought why not give it a try and have a look!

This recipe is actually for toddler.  I used to make this when my boys were about 2 until 4 years old. But, because mister hubby and I also eat toddler food ( why not, they are yummy and healthy too ) so I modified a bit for this recipe.  Still use the same ingredients only adding garlic + salt + pepper.  I apologize as the photos are not a good quality ones.  I really didn't have time to take picture with my camera so my Iphone did the job.


20g butter
3 garlic, diced
3 green onions, chopped finely
1 broccoli, roughly chopped
8 tablespoon water
100g spreadable cream cheese
1 can drained red salmon or 2 pieces fresh salmon (if you using fresh salmon, just lightly grilled it first)
200 g pasta

  1. Heat butter in small saucepan.  Cook garlic, onion, broccol and the water, stirring, until broccoli is tender.
  2. Add cream cheese, cook, stirring until melted.  Stir in salmon. Salt & pepper to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in medium saucepan of boiling water, uncovered, until just tender; drain.
  4. Gently toss pasta in a bowl with salmon mixture.  Add Parmesan cheese before serving.

 My boys love it.  We love it too!
