Smoked Salmon Pasta w. Cream

Easy to make, and glamourous enough for company and candles. Certainly not health food, though. I suggest linguine or fettuccine with this.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 red onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
6 ounces smoked salmon, julienne cut
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp basil

Heat olive oil, then butter in medium skillet. Add garlic, onion, and red pepper and saute until softened (1 minute or so). Add salmon and saute for about two minutes. Add heavy cream and sour cream, then spices.

Cook at gentle simmer until thickened. Toss with pasta, plate. Garnish with chives, parsley, and some parmesean cheese. Pass the pepper mill.
