Method

  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Once it’s cooked, drain, reserving some of the water, and tip it back into the pan. Add the soft cheese, lemon juice and gravadlax or smoked salmon with some pepper and mix well. Add a little of the pasta water to help form a creamy sauce, and heat through.
  2. Add most of the chives, stir, and divide the pasta mixture between bowls. Serve with the remaining chives scattered on top.

This was exceptionally easy but I felt it was a bit bland. I omitted the chives because we don't like them, but in hindsight it would have been better to replace them with, say, dill.

This is a very quick and tasty meal ideal for lunch or dinner. I used fat free fromage frais instead of the cream cheese so didn't need much cooking water and it was delicious!

PS the only thing with the recipe is they don't emphasise the need to use the pasta water enough. First time I made it was very dry because I didn't use enough of the pasta water. I would say about a mug full of the pasta water needed.

Made this twice recently for lunches with ladies and went down a storm both times. Exceptionally easy to make even when chatting and drinking! I added a little garlic just because I like it, served it on a bed of spinach the first time and with a bowl of mixed salad the second time. I also had some smoked haddock which is also very cheap and lasts for ages in the fridge and added a few small bits of that in. Perfect, my new favourite lunch!
