Menu Monday: Salmon pasta

Haven't done this for a while ...

Got a deal on salmon in the pouch, and adapted a recipe I found.

8 ounces spaghetti
¼ cup olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 pouches (2.5 oz) of skinless, boneless salmon
3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the pasta until it is slightly firm to the bite.  Drain well, but reserve 1 cup of the water.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions and garlic until onions are soft.  Add tomatoes and cook until they soften. Add salt and pepper. Add salmon and cook until warmed through. 
Add spaghetti and basil.   If mixture seems too dry, stir in some of the pasta water. Also a good time to add more salt and pepper if needed.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese before serving if desired.
