Description

This rich, creamy pasta has taken the place of traditional fettuccine Alfredo at our house. The cream cheese in the sauce makes this dish different and almost irresistible… and I’m not a big pasta fan! Chicken can be substituted for salmon, and you can add any vegetables that you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Dry Fettuccine
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 6 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 2 cubes Chicken Bouillon
  • 1-½ cup Milk Or Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • ¾ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 whole Roma Tomatoes
  • 2 cups Cooked Salmon, Shredded

Preparation

In a large Dutch oven, bring salted water to a boil to cook pasta.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a large, deep skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and salt. Sauté for a few minutes, then add garlic and cook for just one more minute.

Cube cream cheese and add it to the skillet with bouillon cubes. Stir till cream cheese is melted.

Pour in cream and bring to a simmer.

Add lemon zest and Parmesan cheese.

When cheese is completely melted, add tomatoes and salmon (You can also add mushrooms, asparagus, squash, etc… I use salmon grilled on a cedar plank. You can use baked or smoked salmon…or even grilled chicken.) Taste sauce and salt it if necessary.

Pour sauce over drained, cooked pasta. Toss and season with a few twists of fresh-ground black pepper. Serve and enjoy!

This was amazing. I didn’t have bouillon, so I used goya’s sazon instead. Thanks for sharing!

I made this tonight & it was delicious! I did substitute sundried tomatoes for roma tomatoes & used some premade salmon burgers I bought at Trader Joe’s. I also used a combo of penne & rotini pasta. This is definitely a keeper!

Made this tonight…actually used the canned salmon we ended up with, 1tsp lemon juice instead of zest, and left out the boullion cubes completely. Absolutely delicious. Husband, son, and I approve!
