750gm Giant Pasta Shells
1Tbs butter or 15mls oil
1-2 garlic cloves crushed
1 medium onion diced
Juice of 1 lemon or 2 tablespoons bought lemon juice
250gm of cream cheese (mixed with 15ml fresh cream-optional)
400gm smoked salmon off cuts.
Salt and black pepper to taste
Boil pasta in either salt water or I add a teaspoon of chicken stock powder, until al dente (soft but still holds its shape)
Melt the butter or heat the oil in a very large pot, one big enough to add the pasta to afterwards for mixing. Fry the onion and garlic until soft and glassy.
Mix in the lemon juice
Add your cream cheese. Mix well.
Add your pasta and mix well until the shells are coated. Serve with a green salad.
