Step 1:

Make roasted garlic. Chop the end of the garlic head, peel some of the skin off, and place it on aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 400F. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover it with the foil and place it in the oven for 40 minutes.

Step 2:

Cook the pasta noodles based on the package instructions.

Step 3:

Season the salmon with all-purpose seasoning.

Step 4:

Place a pan over medium heat. Add some oil and 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter. Once melted, add the seasoned salmon skin side up. Press firmly and cook for about 60 to 90 seconds then flip. Cook the other side for another 60 to 90 seconds. Once cooked, remove and place on a plate.

Step 6:

Add the spinach and mix. Increase the heat to high and add heavy cream. Mix and bring it to a simmer. Season with all-purpose seasoning and red pepper flakes. Taste as you go. Mix parmesan cheese and reduce heat to medium-low heat. Cook until the sauce is thickened.
