I am sure most of us have a favourite smoked salmon (cold smoked) creamy sauce pasta dish. But is it a 12 minute dish? Here is the easy way: boil pasta (penne, rigatoni, rotini, not ribbon pasta). Drain but not too much, leave them wet. Save a cup of pasta water. Put them back in the pot and dump over them a brick of cream cheese (cut up in quarters), capers , green onion, some Dijon mustard, dill and sliced salmon. Stir the mess until the cheese turn into a sauce. Add pasta water as needed. Eat them quickly - once they cooled down they get almost inedible. Credits for the idea go to Michael Smith.
