The bomb diggity! I went searching becuase we catch a lot of fish and smoke ourselves and I often wonder what else can I do with it besides laying it on top of a bunch of salad greens. This dish was a HUGE HIT at the family dinner table with children ages 6, 10, 12 - who all asked for seconds. I am the type that doesn't measure and made the recipe for the family of 5 and have one serving left over. roasted two very small onions harvested from my own garden in toaster oven, made a beschemel with 2T of butter & 2 T of flour and added approx 2 C of Half & half because I didn't have cream handy and added approximately 1/4 c of the grated parmessan cheese I had on hand, knowing they would sprinkle more on top. Salt, pepper and dried dill to taste. Added to 1 lb of bowtie pasta. Everything modified to what I had on hand. Saucy enough and not overly cheesey. A keeper! thanks JC for a wonderful recipe!

Wow. Although a little richer than most of the things I cook, this is a delicious treat. I made it pretty much as written, (including roasted green onions- what a nice flavour they add!) However, I used only a single cup of cream, added loads of fresh dill as well as the zest of one lemon in the cream sauce. I'll be making this again. I served with steamed asparagus and roasted Brussels sprouts.

We made this with gnocchi rather than pasta. It is my husband's favorite dish at restraunts. I used only 1 cup of cream and 2 T of chopped onion since I didn't have geen onion. It was a big hit. He moaned, "So good, and I'm so full, but I can't stop eating."

We made this as part of a 6-course wine tasting dinner with friends last night and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I will cut the cream with 1/2 and 1/2 next time and think it will be just as good. Lots of freshly grated parmigiano! Thank you! LJ

lovely, quick and delicious. I halved the cream and replaced it with a dry white wine (unwooded chardonnay) and reduced the sauce so it was thick enough to coat the pasta. I also chopped through some pitted queen (green) olives for piquancy.

Great recipe, didnt have (need) all the ingredients and substituted Whipping for Heavy Cream and Green Onions for Regular Onion, it was still fabulous.

Used this to finish off some smoked salmon, now I wish I had more salmon. I didn't have any green onions, so just omitted it. Thanks!

This is a great recipe. I didn't roast the onions, but just added them at the end. I also reduced the cream sauce before serving.

An easy recipe and delicious to boot. Im immediately forwarding this recipe to my sister in Alaska---the land of the smoked salmon!

This is a very easy and quick dish to fix. After adding the cream and bringing to a simmer, I reduced the sauce by about 25% so it coats the pasta better. I already had this recipe and was going to post it as I plan on fixing it again tomorrow night, now I don't have to. I also add a dash of Tabasco sauce as I do with just about all cream sauces I make. This is very good and makes a good weeknight dinner that seems special, but requires very little work. Add a salad and rolls and you have a wonderful meal.
