Directions

  1. Cook penne in boiling salted water following package directions; drain, reserving the pasta water.
  2. Drain salmon, reserving 1 teaspoon of liquid; remove large bones and skin, flake salmon.
  3. Combine reserved salmon liquid with oil, vinegar, basil, salt, pepper and cream cheese. Whisk to blend well, pour over the warm penne and gently stir so the sauce coats the pasta. Allow the pasta to completely cool.
  4. Toss the cooled penne with flaked salmon, tomato, celery, cucumber, green onion, and dill.
