Lemon - Butter Salmon & Broccoli Penne

This is one of my favorite ways to cook Salmon.
It is very easy and quick and with the pasta and broccoli combined with the Salmon, you have a complete meal that is Healthy and light.
I found this recipe a few years ago in Fitness Magazine.
Serve this dish along with some fresh fruit and you have a very refreshing and healthy meal.

Lemon-Butter Salmon & Broccoli Penne

2-3 Salmon Fillets (salt and peppered)
3 cups of dry whole-wheat pasta or multi-grain
2-3 cups of cup up Broccoli
1 tbsp of butter
1/2 cup low-sodium Vegie broth
1 lemon juiced and zested
2 tbsp of corn starch mixed with 1/4 cup of the Vegie Broth
2 garlic cloves, minced

How to Make:
1. Broil or Grill Salmon for about 8 minutes or until done.
2. Cook Pasta according to package directions. When pasta is almost done add broccoli and cook another 2-3 minutes.
3. Whisk together melted butter, broth, lemon zest and juice, and garlic in a saucepan. When slightly boiling add the cornstarch mixture. Cook until thick. Toss the sauce with the drained pasta and broccoli. Serve pasta and add Salmon to the side or on top.
4. I also like to add some Parmesan Cheese on top of all.
