Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with water. Add sea salt to taste, and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in penne and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until pasta is cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.
  2. Drain penne well, and reserve 1 cup of pasta cooking water.
  3. Return penne and reserved cup of pasta water to the empty pot and place over medium-low heat.
  4. Stir smoked salmon, cream cheese, dill, green onions, Dijon mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, and black pepper into pasta until cream cheese is melted, 4 to 5 minutes.

I was quite excited about this recipe and I must admit, I really enjoyed it. However, I could have frozen to death from the cold stares that I received from everyone else around the table. I understand what they feel. A large block of cream cheese does not a sauce make. Since I try to stay away from white flour and processed food, I always use whole wheat pasta so of course this will absorb more sauce and make every sauce just a little bit more dry. I would and will make this recipe again but with a classic alfredo sauce to which I shall add the salmon, lemon, pepper, onions, and dijon. Oh well, more left overs for me!

The fresh dill is the key ingredient. I was surprised at how easy and tasty this was while being very easy to make. I will add peas or asparagus next time to round it out.
