Ingredients

  • ½ box of thin spaghetti
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
  • 1 pound salmon, ground
  • 1 Cup arugula, packed
  • 6 slices plum tomato
  • 6 Tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil; season with salt. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and let cool for 5 minutes.

Mix egg, olive oil, and cheese. Stir egg mixture into pasta. Divide pasta into a 12-well greased muffin pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes; turn out pasta and place upside-down on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake an additional 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Season ground salmon with salt and pepper and form into sliders about the size of the muffin pan openings. Cook on a nonstick pan over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side.

Build sliders using the pasta as buns, topped with mayonnaise, a salmon patty, arugula, and tomato.

Spaghetti Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Spaghetti Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.

Spaghetti Wine Pairing

Cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, nero d'avola, primitivo, sangiovese, or carménère with meat- or tomato-based sauces; grenache or chardonnay with cream-based sauces; pinot gris/grigio, albariño, or other fresh white wines (for instance, soave, Italian sauvignon, or grillo) with seafood pasta; nebbiolo, dolcetto, or barbera with most non-seafood pasta.
