This is a quick pasta meal I made up recently that turned out well, especially as it has been very humid, and hot lately.  You can cook the pasta anyway you want, but this is the way I have been doing it for awhile, to reduce energy and decrease heating up the house when it is this hot and sticky.   Also, it uses thickened yogurt, versus say cream or a more complex roux-based sauce, for a simple and cheap ingredient.  It got the thumbs up from Jim.  If you can eat gluten - feel free to use regular pasta!



Smoked Salmon Fettuccine
serves about 4-6

Ingredients

1 package (340 gm) gluten-free fettuccine (I used Catelli or Barilla here)
1 recipe yogurt cheese (about 2 cups, made from 1x750 mg bucket of yogurt)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried dill
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 package smoked salmon (about 1/2-2/3rds of a lb), roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups peas, thawed if frozen
(alternately, some trimmed, sliced, and blanched fresh asparagus)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 - 4 tbsp capers, drained and chopped
salt and pepper to taste
(optional - 1 tbsp dijon mustard).

Anyways, the yogurt cheese made a nice creamy sauce.  Also, this was a quick weeknight meal and in light of the recent heat and humidity, actually was bad to make with the induction cook top and the method of cooking I have been using for pasta for awhile.

I boiled water and salted.  Added the fettuccine.  When it came to a boil again, stir pasta lightly, turn off the heat, and cover the pot for about 8-10 minutes.  Once or twice, stir gently again, and cover the pot, to keep the pasta from sticking too much.  When pasta is al dente, add the peas to the hot water and drain.  Maybe save a bit of the pasta water to thin the sauce in case it is needed.

Combine the yogurt cheese, dijon, parmesan, dill, capers, lemon juice/zest, salmon, and mix gently and thoroughly into pot of pasta.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add a splash of water and stir gently if sauce too thick.  Serve right away.

A bit more on my blog if you are interested.

I am hoping, that as it is made with the yogurt cheese, versus cream, butter, etc, that it would be less calories too Smiley  Plus, I am enjoying the tang of the yogurt - it works well with the salmon.
