2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and squashed with the blade of a knife
7 oz vacuum packed salmon, in small pieces, or 7 1/2 oz canned salmon, drained well and flaked
1-14 oz can Italian plum tomatoes, crushed
1/2 chili pepper, broken into small pieces or 1/4 t chili pepper flakes
2 T fresh Italian parsley, chopped
1 lb bows (farfalle) or conchiglie (shells)
6 quarts water
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the garlic and brown lightly.
Add the salmon. Cook for a few minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
Add the tomatoes, and chili pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta. Drain when done to taste, reserving 1/4 cup of the water.
