Serving Size: 4-6


1 lb. Pappardelle’s Everything Bagel Orzo
4 salmon filets, 6-8 oz. per piece
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 oz. crème fraÎce

1 tablespoon capers, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 8-10 minutes. Drain.
  3. Toss red onion and tomato halves in 1-2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt & pepper. Place on a baking sheet and cook in oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until tomatoes and onions softened and have a slight char.
