Recipe of the Month

I had farfalle. Spring means asparagus. A bit of web searching turned up a recipe for farfalle with asparagus and smoked salmon. It's actually a pasta salad, intended to be eaten at room temperature. The farfalle and sliced asparagus tips are cooked separately and mixed with lox, lemon juice, olive oil, basil, black pepper and a little bit of chopped pistachio.

I liked this, though next time I would leave the lox in bigger pieces. I will, however, note that looking for recipes on-line defeats the purpose of trying a new recipe each month, since it does nothing to get me to go through umpty-ump years worth of clippings.
