I wanted the children to eat more fish and vegetable. All children like pasta dishes. Salmon and pasta just go well together.
Place the salmon, breadcrumbs, garlic, basil, a tablespoon of olive oil, egg, salt and pepper in a food processor. Turn the processor on to pulsate for 5 seconds till the salmon mixture is well chopped up.
Divide the salmon mixture into 16 –20 pieces. Place a cheese ball in the centre of a flatten salmon mixture and roll into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the cheese balls and salmon.
Heat the rest of olive oil in a pan. Fry the salmon balls gently for 2-3 minutes without browning.
Add in the milk. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Add in the cream cheese, peas and carrot. Simmer for a further 5 minutes till the cream cheese is melted and the salmon balls are cooked through. Season to taste.
Boil the pasta in water according to the instruction on the packet. When cooked, drain off the water
Divide the cooked pasta onto 4 warm plates. Spoon over the salmon balls and cream cheese sauce.
Sprinkle with grated cheese. Garnish with a sprig of basil. Enjoy with the family.
