    Cooks4_6's Note:

    My attempt to emulate one of my favorite dishes from Buca di Beppo. You can also serve the sauce on noodles and place the salmon on top of it.

    1. 1
      Season salmon if you choose and either sear in a pan, then place in oven to cook until finished or grill. Keep warm if it finishes prior to the sauce.
    2. 2
      In the meantime, warm the olive oil in a saute pan until just warm and add pesto and heat on medium until it becomes more liquid.
    3. 3
      Add cream and half and half and bring to a gentle boil while whisking. Continue to cook over low heat stirring frequently until thickened.
    4. 4
      Add parmesan cheese and stir until melted.
    5. 5
      Serve salmon on a bed of the sauce.

      Perfect meal for a work night! This has virtually no prep and comes together in a snap. Yet it is delicious and elegant to boot. Served with a side of pole beans, this dish is a weeknight winner! Made for Photo Tag Fall 2013.
