Philadelphia Surprise

Last night I made a new thing, based loosely on the this Philadelphia Macaroni Cheese recipe.

Approx 1/2 tub Philadelphia Light
Grated cheese
Wholewheat pasta - about 1 person's worth (depends how much you like pasta. I like it a lot so I do a lot!)
1 piece of salmon (preferably without skin, as trying to get raw salmon off the skin is quite time-consuming, as I discovered last night!)

1. Cook pasta
2. Whilst pasta is cooking, gently heat Philadelphia in a pan. When it's melted, add half the the grated cheese and salmon and continue to cook over gentle heat.
3. Drain pasta when cooked and stir into Philadelphia concoction.
4. Transfer to oven-proof dish and sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
5. Put in oven Gas Mark 6 (about 200°C) until too hungry to wait any more (cheese melts nicely after about 10 minutes)
6. Scoff the lot, in two portions if you're feeling good.

Sorry there aren't any measurements for this but I just kind of made it up as I went along. It is a quick and easy dish though, and can be adapted for more people with ease I would think. I would probably add some salt or at least pepper with the Philadelphia next time, as it was nice but a little bland. I might also look at experimenting with some herbs or spices of some sort to give it a bit of a lift.
