Farfalle with Salmon, Lemon and Peas



Farfalle with Salmon, Lemon and Peas



This is a homey meal that has a restaurant ‘feel’ to it.  I think it’s the heavy cream that’s responsible, which also means that this is not low calorie dish.  But the cream does so many good things for this pasta, I think, once you taste it, you’ll agree the calories are worth it.  For one thing the cream allows you to add as much lemon as you need to get great lemony flavor.  With anything short of heavy cream, the sauce would curdle with the addition of the acidic citrus juice.  This is also a kid pleaser and a great way to introduce fish to picky eaters…my girls grew up loving ‘pink fish’, and this has been one of their most requested meals over the years.

Ingredients
·         2 good rounded cups farfalle, (bowtie pasta) uncooked
·         1/2 lb salmon fillet or leftover cooked salmon
