Smoked Salmon Pasta

It is official, I am a salmon freak...we had this dish 2 days ago and I'd certainly make it often. Aside from being easy to prepare, salmon could be substituted with other stuff such as bacon for carbonara, tuna, green peas and mushroom, and crab and corn too!

smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 onion, finely chopped (optional)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 cups milk
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 package farfalle or your preferred pasta

How to:

1. Cook pasta per package directions, drain and set aside.

2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion in butter.

3. Stir flour and garlic powder into the butter and onions. Gradually stir in milk.

4. Pour in cheese until the sauce is smooth. Stir well and cook over low heat for a few minutes.

5.Toss in smoked salmon, and cook for 2 more minutes. Serve over pasta. Voila!

You can also serve it with caviar!
