Have I mentioned that I constantly think about food? It's sad, but true.
Last Sunday I bought ingredients to test my recipe for a potato cook-off (more on that later), and had some cream cheese and smoked salmon left over. I decided to use those two ingredients to make a super fast, colorful and delicious dinner a few nights ago.
This is not an exact recipe--it's simply a template/idea list for you to experiment with. You shall be the judge of how much of each ingredient to use.
Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese & Spinach Pasta
spaghetti (I was out of spaghetti, so used Chinese noodles)--cooked, drained, a bit of liquid retained
cream cheese, at room temperature
smoked salmon, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
1. In a large bowl mix cream cheese, spinach, hot drained pasta and a bit of pasta water.
2. Add smoked salmon, capers and dill. Mix. Season with freshly ground pepper.
3. You can either serve this dish right away, reheat it, or even eat it cold the next day.
Variations: add fresh tomatoes, sauteed red peppers, and/or black olives!
