Rosy Creamed Sole Tossed with Pasta

3/4 lb Fusilli lunghi or Margherita pasta
2 tb Unsalted butter
2 tb All purpose flour
2 c Milk
2 tb Tomato paste or sun dried tomato paste
1 1/2 lb Lemon sole, cut into thin strips (1/2-inch wide and 2 inches long)
1/2 c Packed fresh mint leaves, minced
Salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente or according to package directions. In a sauce pot heat butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook until bubbling, about 20 seconds. Add milk a little bit at a time and whisk until smooth.

Bring sauce to a boil and simmer 3 minutes. Whisk in tomato paste. Add the fish strips and cook, uncovered, until fish is just cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add mint, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Drain pasta, divide it among shallow bowls and ladle fish sauce over each portion.

Yield: 3 to 4 servings
