Here is a classic romantic dish, so simple  and easy  to prepare with a little extra to make it luscious  and more appetizing, the Pasta Corta con Salmone e Noci: or Pasta with Salmon and Walnuts.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 4-5 walnut meats, chopped
  • 2-3 ounces (50-75 g) smoked salmon, shredded
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Salt & pepper
  • Flour, for thickening (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1/2 pound (200 g) short pasta, along the lines of farfalle (bow ties).


Bring salted pasta water to a boil and while the pasta is cooking sauté the garlic in the oil in a skillet, discarding it when it has browned. Add the nutmeats, cook them for a few minutes, then add the salmon and season lightly. Add the cream and heat through, thickening the sauce with a little flour if you want. Drain the pasta and turn it into the skillet. Toss over a brisk flame for a minute, stir in the minced parsley, and serve.

You can also try salted smoked tuna which is as good as salmon.

Buon Appetito!
