This is my variant on pasta carbonara with smoked salmon substituted for the bacon. It's so delicious!

  • 500g penne
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
