Pasta is easily transformed from plain tomato sauce to something more elegant by adding a few ingredients. You can add leftover chicken or stir fry to jazz up the sauce! For this pasta, I bought some prawns and smoked salmon.
Begin by dicing up the onions and garlic for the tomato sauce.
Sauté the onions and garlic in a bit of olive oil. You want to cook the onions to get it tender and aromatic.
While the onions and garlic cook (1-2 minutes), prepare the prawns and smoked salmon. (I diced the smoked salmon but I should have really shredded it.)
Cook the prawns with the onions and garlic. Add a bit of paprika for colour and taste. Once the prawns are cooked, added some salt and pepper and turn down the heat. Its also a good idea to undercook your prawns since you will be heating it with the sauce.
Open a can of diced tomatoes and put it in the pan. I chose tomatoes with no salt and no herbs since I like to add my own. Add your favourite herbs. I love Italian pasta so I am very generous with the oregano!
Add the smoked salmon to the sauce. The other thing I love in pasta is petite peas, so I added a generous handful. Let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes just to release all the flavours.
Voila!! A quick and easy pasta. Serve the sauce over fresh pasta and sprinkle with some parmesan cheese! Yum 🙂
