Smoked Salmon Pasta Treat


Feeling hungry? I got the perfect recipe for you! Smoked Salmon with Penne. It is deliciouuuuus! Trust me!

I think this is a perfect dinner for two, accompanied by a glass of wine or vermut depending on your taste. The sauce is not too heavy comparing with other cream sauces for pasta.

  6. On a medium/large skillet add the butter then add the chopped onion and garlic. Let it cook for 2 minutes and after add the sauce. Mix it and then add the lemon juice.
  7. Once the penne are done drain it and add it to the skillet together with the sauce. Mix it and add the smoked salmon, parsley and the remaining lemon juice. Season it with black peper.
