      Ingredients  
      12 ounces penne
      2 pounds leeks
      1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
      ¼ cup chicken broth
      2 tablespoons lemon juice
      1 tablespoon olive oil
      2 teaspoons dried thyme, crushed
      ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
      1 yellow summer squash, halved and cut into ¼-inch slices
      ¼ cup pitted kalamata olives
      1 salmon fillet (½ pound), skinned
       

      Directions

      1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prepare the pasta according to package directions.
      2. Meanwhile, cut the leeks into 2-inch lengths and quarter them lengthwise. Rinse the leeks completely. Place the leeks and bell pepper in a 13-x-9-inch baking dish. Add the broth, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of the oil, thyme, and black pepper. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
      3. Add the squash, olives, and salmon to the baking dish and drizzle with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Cover and bake until the salmon is opaque and the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
      4. Place the penne in a large serving bowl. Break the salmon into bite-size pieces and add to the penne with the vegetables. Toss to combine.
