- Add spinach and pine nuts and cook about 2 minutes until spinach has cooked down, slightly.
- Add pasta back to the pan, and add 1/4 cup cream and the goat cheese and stir well.
- Place lid on pan and let rest about 5 minutes.
- Stir again and season with salt and pepper before serving.
- Brush each fillet with yum yum sauce
- Top with crushed peppers or onions
- Bake in a 400 oven for about 15 minutes, until salmon flakes with fork and topping is browned
- Serve over a bed of the orzotto with lemon or lime wedges
