Creamy Salmon Pasta

My husband says this is my best recipe yet! He said it was like he was eating at Red Lobster :)
I actually enjoyed it even though I typically don't like seafood because I had a love affair with the yummy sauce :) My toddler liked it and I even gave the sauce to my baby, who liked it almost as much as her Daddy!!!! If only salmon were cheaper and we could eat this every night!

* 2 Tablespoons Butter
* 1 clove Garlic, Finely Chopped Or Pressed
* 6 whole Green Onions, Finely Chopped
* 1 pound, 1-⅔ ounce, weight Smoked Salmon, Sliced In Small Pieces
* 1 cup Heavy Cream
* 1 cup Table Or Light Cream
* ¼ teaspoons Nutmeg (freshly Grated If You Have It)
* ½ teaspoons Dried Basil
* 2 teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper
* 2 Tablespoons Freshly Grated Parmesan, Plus Extra For Serving

Directions: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add garlic and green onions and saute for 1 or 2 minutes.

Add salmon and saute until slightly opaque (about 2-3 minutes).

Stir in cream, nutmeg, basil, and pepper; continue stirring until sauce slightly thickens (still over medium heat).

Add Parmesan and reduce heat to low, continue stirring for 2-3 minutes.

Serve over fettuccine or your favorite noodles and garnish with extra Parmesan and black pepper.

Recipe can easily be doubled; if using frozen smoked salmon, make sure to thaw it in the fridge before using, otherwise the sauce gets watery.

I don't like seafood, but I'm all about the Pioneer Woman. :) I love her stuff! Jeremy would probably love this so I might have to try it for him sometime. :)
