Smoked Salmon Pasta Primavera
A true pasta primavera is a meat free dish originating from America. It is typically packed full of fresh spring green vegetables in a creamy sauce. My interpretation adds salmon, but keeps the vegetable content high, and I achieve the creamy sauce without using cream by replacing it with low-fat cream cheese. Natural yogurt would be another good option if you prefer. Leave out the smoked salmon if you want to keep it vegetarian.
Typically fresh peas and broad beans are used, as it is a seasonal recipe but I just use frozen instead because it is easier, requires less preparation and they are more readily available. It is one of the quickest nutritious meals I make as it requires so little preparation, fantastic on nights when you really can’t be bothered to cook.
