Farfalle with Smoke Salmon and Cream Cheese
From Martha Stewart Everyday Food

The milk cream cheese perfectly balances the salty, intense flavors of the capers and salmon.
Prep Time: 10 minutes.
Total Time: 20 minutes.
Serves: Four.

12 ounces farfalle (bow-tie pasta)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 small red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 ounces bar cream cheese, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup fresh dill, coarsely chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
4 ounces smoke salmon, cut into bite-size pieces

1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Add onion to pot; immediately drain pasta mixture, and return to pot.

2. Add cream cheese, dill, capers, and salmon to pasta. Toss, adding reserved pasta water a little a time to create a thin sauce that coats farfalle (you may not need all the water). Season lightly with salt and pepper. Serve.
