Mascarpone cheese sauce with variations op. 3. (Smoked Salmon and Arugula)


(Recipe by:Chef Yasue Siewert)


Prep.: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


Makes 3 to 4 servings


4 cups any kind of short dried pasta
2 cups Mascarpone cheese sauce
4 oz Smoked salmon, cut into 1 inch
3 oz baby arugula*
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

* You can substitute baby spinach instead of baby arugula if desired.


Warm the Mascarpone cheese sauce.
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite ("al dente"), stirring frequently to prevent the pasta from sticking together, about 8 minutes. Drain well (do not rinse).
Transfer the pasta to a large bowl. Add the sauce, smoked salmon, arugula, and parmesan cheese, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Serve warm.
