  4. Once the pasta is done cooking, and once the salmon and courgette are done frying… Retain some of the pasta water in a mug. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot..
  5. Mix the cream cheese in to the pot, making sure all the pasta is coated lightly. Add a little more if needed, but don't overdo it if you've chosen a cream cheese that's on the stronger side..
  6. Mix most of the salmon pieces into the pan. Keep a few salmon pieces aside for later. Mix the pasta so that the salmon breaks apart. At this point I usually add some of the reserve pasta water into the pot to loosen the pasta up a bit. Use your judgement..
  7. Serve the pasta into two bowls, with a dusting of parmesan cheese on top. Add on top some of the reserved salmon pieces, for presentation. Some basil also looks nice, if you have some..
