Yum yum yum! Works quite well with Marscapone too if you're not too much of a creme fraîche fan like me, and don't want to go with the double cream. Added a bit of dill too for some extra flavour and served with a plain old salad from a bag with chunks of cucumber as the kids aren't great with watercress, and topped it with balsamic sauce.

This is just divine!!! Fab treat feel good meal after a late night at work- easy to whip up & most enjoyable. Served with a simpe green salad with olive oil & balsamic dressing. This has none of the heaviness sometimes associated with pasta. Added to the repeat cooking list. A winner. Smart enough to serve to riends as well

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!
