If you’re not hip to the #TwoIngredientGame, you should be. It’s a fun game we play on social media where I say give me two ingredients, and I’ll whip up a recipe – live. Only, we do it on Periscope and Facebook Live at the same time. It’s fun stuff! I took two great ingredients and whipped them into an easy weeknight dinner that’s super simple to do.

3/4 box of thin linguini, cooked and drained
1/2 cup of diced onion
4 garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1/2 cup of good white wine
2 cups of chipped frozen spinach, drained
2 cups of heavy cream
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
pinch of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon of dried Italian herbs
1/2 chicken bouillon cube
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups of cooked salmon fillet
1. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent.
2. Then add the chicken bouillon, dried herbs, and red pepper flakes to the pan. Cook for 30 seconds and then add in the white wine. Let the wine reduce by about half.
3. Then add in the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper. Let the cream cook down for about 10 minutes and it will thicken. Then, add in the spinach and parmesan cheese and cook until the spinach is warmed through.
4. Toss with pasta and cooked salmon. Enjoy while it’s still warm.
