Farfalle (Bow Tie Pasta) With Smoked Salmon and Asparagus

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ellie_

Delicious pasta which I had at a cooking class I went to recently. The teacher/chef said not to sub in milk for the heavy cream because you need the butter fat.

This was a really nice and subtle combination of flavors! I used half and half successfully here. I prepared the entire package of pasta but after it was cooked and as I added it into the rest of the meal, I didn't feel I needed quite all of it so I reserved a couple of prepared cups for another meal. I decided to add a sprinkling of grated romano cheese just before serving to each portion.
