Talk about a recipe that's swimming in goodness. With noodles, salmon and other flavorful ingredients, this is a one-hit wonder.

4 cups broad egg noodles or shell noodles
1 tbsp. butter or oil
2 tbsp. shallots, finely chopped or 1 clove garlic, crushed, finely chopped
8 oz. smoked salmon
4 whole green onions
1 cup sour cream
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
White pepper, to taste

Cook the pasta. Drain but do not rinse. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large frying pan. Add the shallots and saute for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the salmon into thin bite-size pieces and slice the green onions; set aside. Then, whisk the sour cream, Dijon and pepper into the sautéed shallots. Remove from the heat and immediately stir into the drained cooked pasta. Add the salmon and green onions and toss. Serve hot or as a cold pasta salad.
