Creamy Linguine with Smoked Salmon

I have always loved creamy pasta. As you can see, I seldom cook but bake rather alot. While looking at other food blog, I came across this recipe here and was rather amazed to find out that creamy pasta is reaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllyyyyy eaaaaaaasssssssyyyyyyy to whip up.

When I saw that recipe, I kmew I had to make some for myself. So for dinner today, I made Creamy Linguine with Smoked Salmon. You could prepare, cook and finish eating this in less than an hour! Am not kidding! Really a breeze!

Eating this pasta warm on a cold rainy day .. what more could I ask for!

I tweaked the recipe with what I have. I am sure it tasted as good as the recipe that I saw.


250 gm linguine
1 small red onion, chopped
200 gm cream (add uht milk if not enough creaminess)
75 gm smoked salmon, chopped (more if you have .. i only had that much)
60 gm fresh button mushroom, sliced
a handful of fresh basil, chopped
salt and crushed red pepper


Cook linguine in a large pot of boiling water till al dente.
Drain then wash under running water.

In the same pot, put in cream, onion, mushroom, basil leaves and smoked salmon.
Put in the pasta and mix till the pasta is coated with the creamy sauce.
Season with salt and crushed red pepper.
Serve immediately with sprinkles of more crushed pepper for an added kick.

The kids also had this creamy pasta for dinner. Theirs was a more simpler version of just cream, chopped sausages, button mushroom and then seasoned with salt.

So there you go .. another recipe which could be prepared in a jiffy!

Here's a meme TRIVIA:
Did you know that I am a sucker for easy recipes??
I guess now you know .. ;-)

Hi there, I happen to come across your food blog while goggling for Black Pepper Seafood Pasta and saw your other recipes.

Do you mind telling me where I can buy basil leaves? I tried Giant & NTUC but I cant find them anywhere in these supermarkets.

Thanks in advance!
