Leslie's Random Acts of Kindness Casserole

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"I make this easy-peasy, one-pan pasta dish for new parents or stressed-out friends and it always seems to make the evenings go a little more smoothly. The smoked salmon and green pea combo plays up the salty-sweet flavors loads of people crave, and the lemon zest/breadcrumb topping brightens up what could be an over-the-top rich dish."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place peas in a large colander in the sink.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fusilli in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until chewy and still firm to the bite, about 9 minutes. Drain fusilli over peas.
  4. Return fusilli and peas to the pot. Add heavy cream and smoked salmon; mix well to combine. Season with salt and black pepper. Pour into a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  5. Combine bread crumbs, olive oil, parsley, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a small bowl; mix lightly with a fork. Scatter topping over casserole.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you are refrigerating the casserole before cooking it, double the baking time.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
