Pasta with Lemon, Basil and Smoked Salmon

This is a delicious, elegant recipe
that makes you feel like you are eating
out at a fine restaurant.

My husband made this recipe
and it was so delightful!
We loved the flavors and he said that
he would definately make it again
because it is fairly easy to make.
