"A really quick, easy sauce for 'pasta asciutta,' which means 'dry pasta.' It's not a dish over-loaded with sauce, but one that appreciates the simple smokiness of good smoked salmon. Serve sprinkled with some Parmesan or garnished with some parsley. This is not a creamy, thick sauce. Just one that really brings out the simple, yet fantastic flavors of smoked salmon. Enjoy!

1 (8 ounce) package
extra-virgin olive oil
smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
reduced-fat cream cheese
Had to double the sauce, and add a lot more salmon!
Too plain when made with grilled salmon. I added 1/2 cup yellow pepper, garnished with dill and lemon which helped but wasn´t enough. I will try again but with red pepper and slightly more cream cheese.
Very good and indeed quick and easy! I love these kinds of recipes because ingredients are simple and it's stuff I normally have in my fridge and freezer. The only thing I didn't have was a shallot so I used a red onion instead and it was great. I also added a clove of minced garlic for some bite, and instead of milk I used some table cream.
Nice one! I also like to put a little fresh lemon in there.. and maybe loose the cream so it gets a little "lighter" :) I usually make this sort of dish with homemade fresh pasta...If you never tried making pasta do it! Its alot of fun, and really not that hard. greets!
This recipe rocks. Feel free to improvise but a must is to double the sauce. Also, I think it important to dish the noodles and the dish sauce over. Do not mix all together. I added halved grape tomatoes to the sauce along with some dill. Served with fresh Parmesan and red pepper flakes. Also doubled the salmon. Really really easy...finished everything in less than 25 minutes. My husband loved.
We really liked this! Needed something to use up my lox, this was easy and delicious. Doubled the sauce as others suggested. I used spaghetti, I had onion on hand, not shallot, and I added some tomato pieces. Came out great.
Outstanding! Made for four servings; increased Salmon 1.5x more, added 1 tsp Capers and 1 tsp grated Parmesan to sauce; did NOT add water to sauce. Held sauce warm for 15 min while I made the linguini. So easy and so fast, and everyone from 2-60 yrs old RAVED! Served w/ Merlot, milk for the 2-yr old :), and finish w/ Pecan dessert of choice.
My family and I love this recipe! It is light, yet tasty!
