Method

  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the garlic for 1-2 mins until softened. Add the spinach and continue to cook until just wilted. Stir through the cream cheese, lemon zest juice and, and some black pepper.

  2. Drain the pasta but reserve a few spoonfuls of the cooking water. Add the salmon, basil and pasta to the sauce, along with the cooking water to loosen it a little. Toss together and season with more pepper, to taste, before serving.

Followed the recipe but it turned out very dry and did not coat the tagliatelle well. I added some natural yoghurt and a little more lemon and garlic. It was then a really enjoyable meal. We had courgettes as a side accompaniment and this worked very well. I would definitely make this again, the basic recipe is a good start for many dishes, just needs to be a little more saucy!!

Really quick and very tasty! A touch too much lemon for my liking but my wooden reamer is really effective. I added some pine nits for crunch, which was a good addition.

A delicious, light supper, perfect for the summer months. I used Light Philadelphia to lower the calories and had some cherry tomatoes left over so halved them and stirred them in near the end - they were warmed through but kept their shape. Delightful!
