The mild cream cheese perfectly balances the salty, intense flavors of the capers and salmon.


12 ounces farfalle (bow-tie pasta)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 small red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 ounces bar cream cheese, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup fresh dill, coarsely chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
4 ounces smoked salmon, cut into bite-size pieces-Try Ducktrap Smoked Salmon


Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Add onion to pot; immediately drain pasta mixture, and return to pot.

Add cream cheese, dill, capers, and salmon to pasta. Toss, adding reserved pasta water a little at a time to create a thin sauce that coats farfalle (you may not need all the water). Season lightly with salt and pepper. Serve.
