Ingredients

  • 1 container (12 ounces) prepared spinach artichoke dip (I used one from Fresh & Easy)
  • 1 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 8 ounces frozen peas, defrosted
  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 cup pasta water
  • 6 ounces smoked salmon, broken into small pieces

Instructions

  • Bring pasta water to boil.
  • While you are waiting for the pasta water to boil, make your sauce: In a blender or food processor, blend the spinach artichoke dip, greek yogurt and half the peas until creamy and set it aside.
  • When the pasta water is boiling, add a handful of salt and then the pasta. Cook according to the package instructions until al dente. About 1 minute before the pasta is ready, add the remaining half of defrosted peas. Before draining, scoop out a cup of the pasta water and set it aside.
  • Place the drained pasta back into the pot.
  • Scrape the artichoke sauce into the pot and stir. Add some or all of the pasta water to achieve a nice consistency.
  • Stir in the salmon.
