Tonight, I threw out my menu plan for the week. I walked in the door, after work and all I could think of was noodles. Thai noodles, Fettuccine Alfredo, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Pasta with Broccoli, Stuffed Shells. Yes, we had pasta for dinner.
My initial plan was to make Noodles Romanoff and you will see elements of the dish but the results are based on my, “take a little of this and a little of that” and there is dinner. Fortunately, I had plenty of cheese, sour cream, Ricotta, cream cheese and most important, smoked salmon. I also had fettuccine.
An aside: I discoved a pizza flavored cheese that I have added to many dishes and it is good. I did not use it, in this.
I had the makings of a nice salad to go with it, greens, tomato, yellow pepper, dressing and feta cheese. This is a good mix.
Noodles Romanoff, Not……..
8 ounces fettuccine (gluten-free)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1/4 pound of lox (smoked salmon)
3/4 cup sour cream (low-fat)
3/4 whipped cream cheese (low-fat)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 drops of Cayenne (liquid form)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chives
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup water from drained noodles
Cook noodles, according to directions. Drain, keeping some of the water that the pasta was cooked in.
In a medium skillet, in one tablespoon olive oil, lightly brown onions and smoked salmon.
In a medium bowl, mix sour cream, cream cheese, cream, chives, Cayenne, Worcestershire, and salt. Mix together.
Add salmon and onions to cheese mixture.
Add pasta and mix together. That is all. You are ready to serve your Noodles Romanoff Not.
I served this with a salad but it would go well with broccoli or spinach or green beans.
