Recipe: Pasta With Pink Sauce, Zucchini & Smoked Salmon

This is inspired by one of my favorite recipes at a local Italian place. It's one of those where you can really play with amounts - more parmesan in the sauce if you like it thicker, light cream instead of heavy, more zucchini or less, etc. Enjoy!

Serves 6

1 package fusilli, rotini, or penne
2 medium zucchini, sliced
1 large onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 T olive oil
5 T butter
1/2 pint heavy cream
1 28 oz. can crushed plum tomatoes
4 to 8 oz. smoked salmon (lox), cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated, plus more for topping


(1) Cook pasta.

(2) Melt butter over medium-low heat. Add cream, stir. Add tomatoes and parmesan, stir. Simmer over low heat.

(3) Heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic, sauté for a minute, then add zucchini and onion. Sauté until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

(4) Combine pasta, veggies, and sauce (you may have extra). Toss and let sit over low heat for a minute. Remove from heat. Add salmon, toss. Serve with parmesan cheese and a sprig of fresh thyme, if desired.
