Baked Salmon with Whole Wheat Farfalle and Asparagus

This recipe is an oldie, but a goodie! Back in the day, I experimented a lot with recipe creation. I was obsessed with whole wheat pasta dishes. I am actually still obsessed, so maybe some things never change. Back then, adding salmon to a pasta dish seemed daring to me. Shrimp was pretty much the only seafood I added to pasta dishes regularly. Salmon seemed like a bold choice. It was also my preferred choice in this situation because I wanted a high protein meal. I have made this dish with a few different pasta varieties. Farfalle and rotini are my favorites.

I picked up the pasta from Sprouts. They have an impressive selection of whole wheat pasta. In the past I have found it difficult to find whole wheat outside of spaghetti and rotini. 

Seriously, can Costco do any wrong? This is almost 2 1/2 pounds of Atlantic salmon. I paid $20. I used about 17 ounces for this recipe with plenty of salmon leftover for another meal with 4 servings.
