  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook the tortellini 7 to 8 minutes, or until al dente. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a saucepan over low heat, simmer the milk, onion, bay leaf, cloves, and nutmeg about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and discard the onion, bay leaf, and cloves.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the red bell pepper and asparagus, and cook about 3 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, and continue cooking until tender. Mix in the smoked salmon, reduce heat to low, and cook until heated through.
  4. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and slowly whisk in the flour until smooth. Thoroughly blend in the warmed milk. Stir into the skillet with the salmon mixture.
  5. Spoon the salmon and sauce mixture into the bowl with the cooked pasta, and toss to coat.

My family absolutely loved this recipe I used Barilla Tortellini - found on the shelf near regular pasta. I'll definitely make it again.

The flavor of the smoked salmon overpowers everything else; not very good. This recipe could probably be better with salmon filet, instead.

This is great and easy!! I substituted angel hair pasta and cream instead of milk.

quick, easy, wonderful meal! Will definately make again.
