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
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!
Ham and Cheese sticks
This is my favorite past time food, yes 'past time' even though fried cheese can be high in cholesterol. Back in college, we love having this (sans the ham) along with footlong, sago and gulaman, and waffle on the streets (Dapitan!). I remember clearly it costs 2,50 for 5 pieces!
A spin-off of Chicken nuggets, I think, I buy this from the store and the kids like munching on them.
For the ham and cheese sticks, this is how I prepared it.
You'll need cheese, ham, lumpia wrapper. One egg, beaten.
Cut the cheese into thin slices and place it together with the ham inside the wrapper.
Fold them in like this and when you reach the middle fold the edges so that melted cheese won't come out of the wrapper (this happens a lot!)
Moisten the edge of the wrapper with egg and close by sticking it together.
Place the rolled ham and cheese sticks in a container and refrigerate before deep frying.
