Penne with Salmon and Mushroom Sauce

Every once in a while, I actually live up to my empty boasts. This one elicited raves. Oh, I am a goddess. Had to think of something to justify the bashing I gave to Caruso. The secret here is this: fresh mushrooms and canned salmon. And good butter. Its very simple - but if you plate it nicely, your guests will think otherwise.

500 g penne
fresh button mushrooms (slivered)
1 can of salmon (flaked, Century)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup cream
parmesan cheese (grated)
parsley (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic

1) Melt the butter in a hot pan.
2) Throw in the cloves of garlic until the aromatic smell wafts in the air.
3) Add the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms have shrunk.
4) Add the salmon flakes.
5) Let simmer, and then set aside.

1) Boil salted water.
2) When the water is in a rolling boil, add the penne.
3) Cook until the pasta is al dente (8 minutes).
4) When the pasta is cooked, drain the pasta.
5) Put in a large serving bowl. Coat the pasta with cream. Then add the parmesan.
6) Garnish with parsley.

To serve, add the sauce to the pasta. Add parmesan to taste.
I also served toasted herby focaccia.
(Our guest, who is Indonesian, added chili sauce!)
