Cut smoked salmon, with the grain, into 1/2-inch wide strips; reserve. Cook pasta as package directs.
Meanwhile, in large skillet, stir and cook garlic in hot oil over medium-high heat until garlic is golden. Add 2 cups tomatoes, wine, capers, dill weed and basil; stir and cook until mixture is hot. Drain pasta, place in large serving bowl. Toss angel hair with tomato mixture. Add smoked salmon and cheese; toss gently. Garnish with remaining tomatoes and parsley, if desired.
I loved smoked salmon in pasta dishes and this has become one of my favorites. I sometimes omit the tomatoes and make it into a white wine sauce instead of the tomato-based sauce.

Made this for dinner last night - followed the recipe and then added to taste. My wife and I added a bit more wine after we tossed the pasta. We also pan fried our salmon as opposed to using smoked salmon: Delicious! It's equally as good as leftovers. Would definitely make this dish again!

This dish is good with or without the smoked salmon. I used fresh basil and dried dill (i was out of fresh dill). I also used canned whole tomatoes which I chopped up. It's been a cool summer so no ripe tomatoes yet. It's easy, fast and delicious. If you use it without the salmon, just add some steamed veggies.

a quick and delishish meal- I substituted canned pink salmon for smoked salmon,wheat angel hair pasta, a little cooking sherry instead of the white wine and dried herbs- it came out perfect and our 2-yr old baby loved it
