From the kitchen of Dreamfields Pasta and Chef Jim Coleman

Made with

Penne Rigate


  • 2 cups Dreamfields Penne Rigate
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon chopped
  • 1 medium shallot finely chopped
  • 1 pound asparagus trimmed, blanched, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound cold-smoked salmon cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup chives chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice and tarragon. Add chopped shallot.
  3. In large bowl, toss together asparagus, salmon and pasta. Add dressing; toss gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Sprinkle with chopped chives.

Note: To blanch asparagus, place spears in boiling, salted water and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 to 4 minutes depending on size of asparagus spears. Drain and rinse in cold water or ice water until cooled.
