Creamy Salmon Pasta

I recently had some leftover salmon and decided to stretch it into a meal for my family.  I basically just made a yummy cream sauce to go over it with some pasta.  My husband loved it so I thought I'd share.  Unfortunately, I didn't measure anything, so I'll put my estimations in parentheses :)

butter (about a half a stick)
sweet onion (about half of a medium size)
sweet red pepper (about half of a medium size)
garlic (about 2 or 3 cloves)
salt (about 7 shakes)
flour (about 1/4 cup)
leftover cooked salmon (about 1 cup worth)
milk (1 1/2 cups or more if sauce is thick)
parmesan (about 1/2 cup)
pasta of choice

Directions:  Sautee onions and red pepper in butter til cooked.  Add flour and mix well.  Add milk and stir well til sauce begins to thicken.  Add parmesan and stir til mixed well.  Add salmon.  After heated, serve over hot pasta.  Can also add peas or asparagus.
