Bring a pot of water (at least 4 quarts) to a boil and generously salt it with about 1 tablespoon of salt. Cook the pasta according to package directions and then drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. While the water is heating, brown the pine nuts. Place them in a single layer in a large skillet over medium heat. Stirring occasionally, let them cook just until fragrant and lightly browned. Remove the pine nuts from the pan and set aside.
In the skillet that you used for the pine nuts, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions, cooking just until the onions soften and the pan is fragrant. Add the wine and stir. Let the wine reduce slightly and then add the cream, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of lemon zest. Let this cook 1-2 minutes, until it slightly reduces. (If the pasta is not yet cooked, remove the skillet from the heat until it is ready.)
Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat well. Add a splash or two of the reserved pasta water if it is too dry. Add the smoked salmon, pine nuts, parsley and 1 more tablespoon of lemon zest. Toss again and remove from the heat. Season with pepper and serve with lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy!
