Pizza and Pasta - Asparagus Smoked Salmon Fusilli - 6 Points

I got this recipe from one of the bulletin boards, maybe here or WW. I tried this recipe recently and thought it was great. Fusilli wasn't available when I shopped so I used gemelli instead. Really, any pasta would work, I just prefer to use a small noodle-y type for anything that has sauce.
