A glass serving dish of Salmon and leek pasta, beside two portions in gray ceramic bowls.



  1. Step 1

    In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add leeks and garlic and cook, stirring for about 8 minutes or until softened and starting to become golden. Stir in flour and hot pepper flakes; cook for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and broth and cook, stirring for about 8 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in tomato paste.
  2. Step 2

    Add salmon; cover and cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally until salmon starts to flake. Stir in parsley and basil.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling water cook pasta for about 8 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain well and return to pot.
  4. Step 4

    Pour leek and salmon sauce over pasta and toss to coat well. Salmon will break up into smaller pieces as it coats pasta.
