Smoked salmon is an awesome treat. It gives this creamy dish a distinct flavor of the sea. Pair it with garlic bread and you are all set. You may also add vegetables like peas and carrots if desired. I prefer it plain and simple.
6 tablespoons butter
1medium sized onion, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
10 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
1 16oz. package spaghetti
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil water in a large pot and cook pasta according to package instructions or until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, melt the butter under medium heat. SautÃ© the onions until they are translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another 3 minutes or until light brown. Slowly add the flour while stirring constantly. Pour in the milk gradually and add the cheese. Reduce the heat to low. Mix well until smooth. Add the salmon to the sauce and cook it for another 2-3 minutes. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the sauce over the pasta and serve immediately.
