Trout fillets, asparagus tips and broad beans are an excellent alternative combination to the salmon, carrot and courgette. Cook the asparagus tips and beans with the pasta for the last 4–5 minutes. * Use the recipe as a basis for a quick, healthy storecupboard supper dish, adding frozen green beans and sweetcorn to the pasta, and using well-drained canned salmon instead of the fresh fish. There is no need to marinate or cook the canned salmon: the heat of the pasta will bring out its flavour beautifully.
Using reduced-fat crème fraîche makes a deceptively creamy lemon sauce for a fish that tastes deliciously decadent. * Cutting the courgettes and carrots into thin, pasta-like strips and mixing them with pasta is a good way of presenting them to children who are reluctant to eat vegetables.
