Baked Salmon with Herbed Red Pepper Sauce
Serves 4.

  • 8 ounces pasta
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup roasted red peppers
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 4 (4 oz. each) salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1.    Heat oven to 400◦F.  Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, set aside and keep warm.
2.    Meanwhile, in a blender, puree broth, red peppers, Parmesan cheese, parsley, cilantro, cornstarch and garlic until almost smooth.  Pour red pepper sauce into a skillet and bring to boil.  Reduce heat; stir in half-and-half.  Cover and keep warm.
3.    Place salmon fillets in a baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice.  Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.
4.    Divide pasta among 4 serving dishes.  Top each with approximately 1/3 cup of the red pepper sauce and a salmon fillet.  Spoon on remaining red pepper sauce.
Side suggestion: Serve with steamed broccoli and orange slices.
