Mezze penne with sugo freddo di salmone

Pasta calda sughi freddi (hot pasta with cold sauce) is a great combination that brings you a little taste of summer. And we need that these days with the blizzards and storms telling us that winter is not over yet.

1 pound mezze penne pasta
2 salmon filets

12 oz cherry tomatoes
1 cup artichoke hearts
Juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper, herbes de Provence

Season the salmon filets with salt, pepper and herbes de Provence. Bake in a preheated oven at 400F for about 20 minutes. In a nice serving plate, place the tomatoes cut in half and the artichoke hearts, both at room temperature. Add some olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook the pasta. Add the lemon juice over the baked salmon, and then cut the salmon into bite-sized pieces. When the pasta is al dente, drain it and toss directly over the serving plate. Give it a quick stir, add the salmon and serve warm.
