Smoked salmon, courgette and spinach pasta 

A tasty, flavourful and quick meal. Full of greens and a good super-food fish.

You will need(for 2):

  • 160g smoked salmon, in strips or small pieces (2/3cm)
  • 1 courgette, in ribbons or thin slices
  • 160g spinach
  • 200g pasta, your choice which variety
  • 25g margarine or butter
  • 25g flour
  • 200ml milk
  • Dried thyme, dill/parsley, salt and pepper

Making the, 10 minute, meal:

  1. Put the pasta on to boil. Meanwhile, make a roux with the margarine and flour, then a white sauce. Flavour with the herbs and seasoning.
  2. My courgette was a little too thickly cut so I gave it five minutes. I would usually put the spinach and courgette  in at the same time, about three minutes before serving.
  3. Then add the smoked salmon last so it will sear slightly and hold its lightly smoked flavour throughout the dish. 
  4. Stir in the pasta and serve!
