Fettucine with Salmon and Tomatoes can easily elevate any boring weeknight dinner. This is definitely a recipe your family asks for very often, if not every day.
If you know how to make pasta easily without machine, use fresh pasta for this recipe. Pasta recipes are always a life saver during weekdays. You can make zillions of them with various ingredients like fish, chicken or meat. Even vegetarian versions like creamy mushroom pasta or pasta with lentils are super satisfying.
It’s one of the easiest fettuccine recipes but with a healthy twist. Salmon in this recipe provides the protein you need and all the other ingredients gives it an amazing flavor combination just like our tuna pasta bake.
Who doesn’t love pasta? Well, I love that you can create like a zillion of various recipes with this simple food. The only thing you need to do is to combine the right foods together. I used to love it in the simplest form, cooked pasta with butter. Oh I could eat it everyday for every meal! Other family members would have that buttered pasta with one or two types of cheese. Sometimes I just couldn’t decide which one to eat, so I would eat both! First the plain buttered pasta and then with cheese.
I remember pasta was the first dish I made for my family as a teenager and it was really nice to see everyone gobbled it heartily. I knew it would become my passion those times. Isn’t it so great that you have a different meal every time you cook pasta with different ingredients?
Among all types of pasta, I think my favorite type is fettuccine. And this easy fettuccine recipe with salmon is one of my family’s favorite.
You will love the easiness of this fettuccine with salmon and tomatoes. The flavors meld perfectly together. Salmon, tomatoes and parmesan are the main ingredients you need for this recipe.
This pasta dish has an amazing tomato flavor like our vegetarian tomato fettuccine and it is just in the right level of creaminess, coming mainly from the tomatoes. There is no cream in this recipe, but milk is definitely enough to help the creaminess and gives the pasta a little sweetness.
You can cook this fettuccine with salmon and tomatoes using just one pot. First cook the fettuccine according to package directions, transfer it to a colander and cook the sauce in the same pot. Sauté the garlic in olive oil and then add in the tomatoes. Let them release juice and add salmon, dried dill weed, parmesan and milk. Cook until it gets a thick creamy sauce and toss in the cooked pasta.
I love to garnish it with more parmesan and some fresh herbs when serving.
The only thing you need to pair with this scrumptious fettuccine with salmon and tomatoes is a glass of good red wine.

I altered the recipe just a bit. I added Kale and garlic salt. I used 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, maybe more, and a 14 oz can of salmon. I used 2% milk instead of fat-free. With enough said, I loved this salmon dish and will certainly make it again.
A pasta dish that I would love to eat anytime!
