Smoked Salmon Alfredo

Ingredients

8 ounces fettuccine

1 1/3 cups asparagus spears cut in pieces

1 tablespoon butter

1 clove garlic

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

3 ounces smoked salmon, sliced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dill

1 Tbs of sliced green onions

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions using only the 1/2 Tsp of salt. During the last 2 minutes of cooking time, add asparagus pieces to pasta. Cook 1 minute until pasta is al dente and asparagus are crisp-tender. Drain; cover and keep warm.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, and saute 1 minute, until fragrant. Add broth and cream cheese. Cook 3–5 minutes, whisking frequently, until mixture is well-blended. Add Parmesan cheese, stirring until smooth.

Stir pasta mixture into sauce until pasta is coated. Add salmon, stirring gently until just combined. Sprinkle with dill. Serve immediately.
