PASTA QUEST DAY...week 4...DAY 21


Penne with asparagus and smoked salmon


Olive oil, shallots, garlic, celery
Fennel fronds, chopped
Asparagus, cut into 1-2 inch pieces
Smoked Salmon
Red pepper flakes
White wine, butter
Lemon juice


Cook the shallots and garlic in olive oil. When soft, discard the garlic and add the asparagus, red pepper flakes, and butter. Cook for several minutes before adding a splash of white wine and juice from half a lemon.

Add the cooked pasta, mix, and add the rest of the lemon juice. Add the smoke salmon, mix, and drizzle w olive oil. Dust with the chopped fennel fonds and serve.


It is difficult to improve on olive oil and lemon juice. The smoked salmon and the fennel add a delightful touch to this dish.

I'm not going to rate this dish because I don't think I have any more credibility with my rating. Everything is a nine or ten.
