In large saucepan of boiling lightly salted water, cook pasta according to package
instructions. Drain.

Meanwhile, in separate large saucepan, melt half of the butter over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring, until onion is tender, about 4 minutes.
Sprinkle in flour; cook, stirring, until light golden, about 3 minutes.

Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Add Worcestershire sauce and cook, whisking constantly, until thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 4 minutes.
Stir in Cheddar until melted. Stir in sour cream, salmon and pasta. Scrape into lightly greased 8-cup (2 L) casserole dish or baking dish.

Melt remaining butter; mix with bread crumbs and sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven until topping is golden and casserole is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
