Farfalle with Salmon

Life gets even better when my good friend Sue invites me to dinner as she is one fabulous cook.  A favorite dish she often makes is this quick pasta that has just a few ingredients.

In a large skillet, saute chopped onions in olive oil.
Add smoked salmon. Toss in capers.

Pour in cream.

Set the mood.

Add drained pasta.

Stir gently.
Sprinkle grated parmesan on top.
