I'm not usually a fan of drier pasta dishes, but this was pretty darned tasty. The lemon and tarragon give it a nice fresh flavor. Taste was probably a 3.5, but I've rounded up based on the fact that this is a fast, easy weeknight meal. I did add much more smoked salmon than called for and used the baked smoked salmon as we prefer it. I also added bell pepper to round it out.
Smoked Salmon and Farfalle in Lemon Cream Sauce

Just delicious! I added some lemon zest and about a teaspoon of capers. It did seem a bit dry, so I added an extra splash of wine. Other than that, no changes. The combination of smoked salmon, lemon cream sauce, capers, peas was really good. Farfalle was just the right pasta, too--not too thick or heavy (as something like penne rigate or cavatappi might have been). It's now a favorite when I have extra smoked salmon.
