Pasta salmone affumicato

Me: What do you want for dinner?
Son1: Pasta carbonara.
Me: It is Friday and I thought maybe something with fish.
Son2: Why do you ask then?

Me: What about Salmonara?
Children: Seriously mum Salmonara, and is that even a real dish.

Yes I agree with them, the name was kind of dorky, but it tastes wonderful
