More smoked salmon!  I love tuna sandwiches, but tuna has a high risk of contaminants like mercury.  So I tried it with smoked salmon instead – and here is what I got – pure deliciousness!

Smoked Salmon & White Bean Salad

image_pdfimage_print

I have been on a quest for some lunches that are low calories, satisfying and delicious – not an easy task!  I read about the great value of salmon in our diet (high in omega 3 fatty acids, high in vitamin B12 and D,  less risk of contaminants, low calorie, and the list goes on).  Well, all this led me to purchase a package of salmon.  Now, what to do that is different?  Here is one of two ideas I put together.   The first:

Pasta of the Month – Penne with Carbonara Style Vodka Sauce

image_pdfimage_print

I love pasta – any kind of pasta! Who doesn’t like pasta?  It’s eaten all over the world in some form or another.  Noodles are pasta, but not all pasta is a noodle!   Merriam-Webster (you know, those word experts?) tell us that a noodle is “a food paste made usually with egg and shaped typically in ribbon form”.  They also tell us that the word came from the German “nudel”, which is simply, a noodle.  So where did we get all these weird shapes and tubes?  The one this month, Penne, originated in southern Italy in a region called Campania.  Their name is from the Italian word for pen (penna), because the ends are angled like the end of a quilled pen.  They are also one of the most popular pasta varieties in the US – partly because they work so well with rich, creamy sauces – like the one this month!

So, this month’s pasta is…..

Penne with a Carbonara Style Vodka Sauce

The history of carbonara sauce is unclear.  No one quite knows how bacon and eggs got started as a sauce for pasta, but it’s been around a long time.   You’ll often see it with spaghetti noodles – long and thin tossed in the thick and cheese sauce, but some stories tell of the coal workers in Rome being the creators of this sauce and they used penne.  Penne is easier to toss and the sauce sticks to it inside and out, making a richer dish.   Well this one is inspired by those stories, and I added a twist –  Vodka!  There is no alcohol, it all cooks out, but there is a richness in the flavor that puts it just a step above your plain ol’ carbonara.

Ready to give it a go?  Continue reading
