Pasta with Smoked Salmon in Cream Sauce

I love salmon. I love it so much I could probably eat it every single day.  I love it for dinner.  I love it for lunch.  I love it for breakfast.  I love it baked, grilled, raw and smoked.  With all that, you would think that this recipe was right up my alley.  And it was, sort of.

We made this for dinner and while it was tasty, it is quite light.  More suited for lunch or maybe a dish to add to a Sunday brunch buffet.  I would make it again, just not for dinner.  I would probably add just a bit more parm cheese, to help thicken the sauce.
