Sun Dried Tomato Salmon Pasta

There are some ingredients that you try and you wonder "wow, why haven't I tasted this before." And changes are if I recall correctly, if semi sundried tomatoes were introduced to me 6 years ago, I wouldn't have appreciated it as much as I do now.

Funny enough, it's the semi sundried that I enjoy having not the sundried version. There is something about the juicyness of semi sundried that stands itself apart from sundried part. Not that I know what is the exact difference of course.

My favourite way of having them is in my pasta. Certainly it adds the sweetness and tangyness to a "boring" simple pasta dish. This time round, I had a small amount of smoked salmon in the fridge and decided to use them up as well.

This is probably one of the most no-fuss recipes I have! It's amazing what you can conjour up after a tired day!!!!

Sundried Tomato Salmon Pasta
250 grams dried pasta
20 grams of smoked salmon
100 grams of semi sun dried tomatoes
1 cup of frozen peans
1 cup of frozen corn

1) Cook pasta in boiling water. Drain and keep aside.

2) In a hot pan, heat up some olive oil. Toss sundried tomatoes with pasta till warm throughout. Add peas and corns. Toss salmon through.

3) Serve it with cracked pepper!

I never knew there were semi sundried tomatoes. The pasta dish sounds delicious. Thanks for participating at PPN.

I love the dish. I wonder if your "semi-sundried" tomatoes are the ones I usually buy - sun-dried in oil. I love them, it's a softer flavor.

Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

Oh I love these, but they're quite expensive ): SO I've found a way to create these myself, drying them slowly in the oven instead. The flavour is just as intense and delicious and a lot cheaper plus healthy (: You can check it out if you like!
