Recipe – Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

I decided to treat Ian to his favourite lunch this week and bought some smoked salmon, cream cheese and bagels; the New York deli classic.

After making our lunch, I was left with half a packet of lovely, pink smoked salmon to use up and I decided to make this delicious, creamy pasta dish.

It is quite indulgent but you can swap the cream and cream cheese combination for low fat crème fraîche if you are being good!

I think this is a lovely supper to serve over Christmas and it also tasted lovely chilled if you wanted to serve this as a cold pasta dish for a buffet.

Ingredients

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
