Salmon and Bowtie Pasta

Salmon and Bowtie Pastawith Pink Sauce and Peas

On a recent culinary field trip to a Brooklyn pizza joint that just happened to have some excellent pasta dishes on the menu (as they do), Chef Elana was immediately inspired to recreate her own decadent pink sauce. Tomatoes are blended with cream for that classic pink color, plus fresh peas and chives for added sweetness. Along with tender seared salmon, it's the ideal sauce for scooping up with al dente farfalle, the butterfly-shaped pasta we know as bowties.
