Lord, this pasta is good. I just finished my serving and am already itching for another bowl. Reminiscent of everyone’s favorite brunch, lox and bagels, this pasta pairs creamy sauce with salty, smoky salmon. The recipe is perfect for a hurried weeknight, since it requires minimal cooking. Prepare the sauce while the water for the pasta is boiling and viola.

When buying your salmon, make sure you select wild, sustainably caught salmon. Farmed Atlantic salmon depletes wild fish stocks while releasing waste directly into the ocean. Click here for more helpful information.
