This was incredibly yummy! The BH could not believe that I was using some of our precious smoked salmon to make a pasta dish, but once he had a try he stopped complaining and ate up like a good boy. The only changes I made was to use a vegetable broth instead of chicken, and to stir in a little cream into the sauce. We can't wait to try this one again!
Liked this a lot Miss Rita...very easy and nice for a hot summer day...If you are like JanRoundOz above and want a heavier twist to this dish, you can simply add a touch of cream and about 1/3 of a cup of boursin cheese (or Rondele, any spreadable herbed cheese). It will melt right into the warmed pasta and add a touch of creaminess without being too heavy for the dish. Great recipe Rita..thanks again!!!
This was just ok for us. I think my 6-year old liked it best! It was definitely easy to prepare and had a simple, fresh taste, but seemed to be missing something. My husband added some blue cheese to his and thought that added to the dish.
