Pesto Linguine with Cajun Trout and Roasted Tomatoes is a simply made family dinner made with a pesto mixed into linguine pasta and topped with a nicely seasoned trout and fresh roasted tomatoes.


  • 1 pound linguine
  • 11 1/2 pounds trout (salmon can be also be used)
  • 10 ounces grape tomatoes
  • 6.7 ounce jar pesto
  • 3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 cup reserved pasta water
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper



Cajun Trout with Roasted Tomatoes

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place trout on foil and set in middle of a baking sheet. Rub with olive oil and season with the Cajun seasoning.
  3. Rinse tomatoes and place on the baking sheet around the trout. Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place in oven for 15 minutes or until the fish reaches a temperature of 145.

Pesto Linguine

  1. While preparing the fish, boil a pot of water on the stovetop. Cook linguine according to the instructions on the box. Make sure to reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water before draining.
  2. Drain the pasta and place back into the pot (off the heat). Add pesto and the reserved pasta water and stir until the pesto is covering all the pasta.
