Is it Friday yet? I'm so looking forward to the 3 day weekend! I just picked a bunch of tomatoes, so we're cooking Capellini al Fresco for my friend and her daughter on Saturday. Ella has a birthday party on Sunday, and relax on Monday! Sounds like a nice and low key weekend for us! What's your weekend plans??

Today's recipe is a wonderful pasta! I'm always looking for a way to jazz up alfredo sauce and this recipe does just that! The salmon, spinach and mushrooms taste great together and when mixed with some alfredo and pasta, it's the perfect dinner meal. It also looks really great when served in a vintage Pyrex! Don't you just love the barcode pattern? It's one of my favorites! I'm trying to use them more when I photograph for the blog. Hope you love seeing them!

 Serve with a side salad and some garlic bread. 

Salmon, Spinach and Mushroom Alfredo

What you need:
12 ounces penne pasta, cooked according to package directions.
1/2 pound salmon fillets
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, diced
4 ounces fresh baby spinach
1- 14.5 ounce jar alfredo sauce
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
salt and pepper, as needed
parmesan cheese, for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place in a glass baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven, flake with a fork.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add mushrooms, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and dill weed. Saute for 5-7 minutes until mushrooms and onions are tender. Add spinach and cook for 2-3 more minutes until spinach is wilted. Add the alfredo sauce and milk. Reduce heat to low, add salmon and simmer for 5-10 minutes until heated through. Serve over penne pasta and topped with parmesan cheese.
