    Serves: 4 

    • 300g tagliatelle
    • 150ml single cream
    • 200g smoked salmon trimmings, cut into small strips
    • 8 fresh chives, snipped
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:17min 

    1. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes, or according to the packet instructions, until al dente.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the cream gently in a small pan. Season sparingly with salt.
    3. Drain the pasta, tip into a serving dish and add the salmon and cream. Toss to mix. Grind over some pepper, sprinkle with the chives and serve at once.


    *If using fresh pasta, double the quantity and cook for just 2-3 minutes. *Wrap any surplus smoked salmon in cling film. It will keep for 4-5 days in the fridge, and can be used on canap├ęs, or in a sauce, salad or quiche.

    Lovely, ever so simple! Only made one change and that was to substitute the cream for creme fraiche.  -  30 Jun 2014
