–salmon (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–dill, oregano (fresh if possible)
–black olives (sliced, 1 small can, drained)
–basil marinara sauce (I used Newman’s Own)
–rotini pasta (boxed)
–creamer (dairy or soy; the soy creamer works well in the microwave)
1 – Place 1 cup of rotini pasta in an uncovered baking dish with water to cover. Season with salt. Microwave for 6 minutes on high; then microwave for 6 minutes on 50 percent power. When finished, cover to preserve warmth (do not drain yet).
2 – Place one-third container of basil marinara sauce in a covered baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons of creamer and 1 small, drained can of black olives. Season with dill, oregano, pepper (but no salt), and olive oil. Stir well. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
3 – Place the salmon in the sauce. Season with salt, pepper, dill, oregano, and olive oil. Microwave for 5 minutes on high.
4 – Drain the pasta in a colander.
4 – Serve the salmon and sauce hot, atop the drained pasta.
