Pasta with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, and Peppers

I meant to eat chocolate cake for dinner tonight.  It was just one of those days.  J kindly intervened and made me this instead.  It was so good.  Salty, creamy, hearty–and it even used up some of our CSA peppers.  That man knows what I like.  It was perfect for a chocolate-cake-for-dinner kind of night.

I did eat chocolate cake before and after, though.

Pasta with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, and Peppers: Chop an onion and toss it in your pan with olive oil and a pinch of salt over high heat.  Slice a few sweet peppers into strips and add those too.  Stir often.  When the vegetables are caramelized and sweet, crumble in a chunk of smoked salmon and add cooked pasta until heated through.  Remove from heat, add a few dollops of cream cheese, and serve.

    Chocolate cake for dinner, I like your thinking :)
    Nice to have a backup cook like that. It sounds good. I’ve never made this before. I’d probably substitute ricotta and add chopped parsley. Mmm, something to try :)

    Oh I’ve had days like that too! We end up having pancakes or cereal for dinner on those nights and I say to myself that it’s more important that we’re all at the table together regardless of what we’re eating! That pasta sounds terrific and is the kind of thing I throw together often…I tend to have goat cheese around more often than cream cheese, but same diff.

    Yum, yum, yum, yum! There is this cafe in Prague that makes this smoked salmon in cream sauce pasta that makes me drool like bassett hound. I bet this was amazing! Must. Try. Now!
