Salmon Pasta with Spinach and Artichokes

Salmon Pasta with Spinach and Artichokes
  • 3/4 pound salmon fillet
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  • 2 cups dried whole wheat rigatoni pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (14 ounce) bag fresh baby spinach
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 small shallots, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Coat salmon fillet with 2 tablespoons pesto. Place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and flake salmon into chunks; set salmon aside.
  5. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in rigatoni, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until rigatoni has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  6. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat.
  7. Cook and stir spinach in oil until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove spinach and set aside.
  8. Cook and stir garlic, shallots, red pepper flakes, and black pepper in the same skillet until garlic and shallots are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Pour in extra oil if needed.
  9. Stir in drained artichoke hearts and cook until heated, about 3 minutes.
  10. Pour in white wine and simmer until slightly reduced, 5 to 10 minutes.
  11. Combine 2 tablespoons pesto, cooked spinach, salmon, Parmesan cheese, and cooked pasta in the skillet and lightly toss until mixed, 1 to 2 minutes.
