Method

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, bring the wine to the boil in a large frying pan, then simmer for 1 min. Reduce the heat, stir in the cream and season well.
  2. When the pasta is cooked, drain briefly and tip into the frying pan with the sauce. Add the Parmesan and flaked salmon pieces, and mix gently together. Pile into bowls, sprinkle with pine nuts and serve with the watercress salad (recipe below) alongside.

I love this recipe and so do my O/H and two teenagers.
I do it as per the recipe for special meals but have made it with ordinary tinned salmon for a midweek family meal and it still tastes great.
Haven't made the salad, serve with crusty italian bread instead. yummy!!!

Qucik, easy and delicious - saved a bit of money by using some existing salad dressing, but will make this one at another time and cut the portion size down for one person - great!

Used half fat creme fraiche as Nicky S suggested. We loved this; always good when my husband says he'd have it again :)

Quick and easy to make - I used half-fat creme fraiche instead which still gave it a good consistency although I left out the pine nuts as I gave this to my 15 month old too!

Very quick and easy. I used peppered hot smoked salmon as they only had that or sweet chilli salmon in my supermarket, I think the extra pepper balanced the cream and stopped it being too sickly. Salad dressing was nice with the citrus flavours but I tried three supermarkets and a health food shop and everyone was out of stock of poppy seeds so we had to do without!

I found this recipe too rich and a little cloying, although the salad helped to cut through the creamy sauce.

This was delicious and loved by all the family, I made the (rather expensive) hot smoked salmon go a little further by throwing in some strips of ham - unconventional but it seemed to work for us!
