Tortiglioni with Smoked Salmon and Broccoli

Pasta Bake with Broccoli and Salmon

I love pasta and smoked salmon as a really “quick fix” meal when the kids have activities and we need to be in and out of the house quickly! Fresh pasta makes this dish very quick indeed.

Ingredients (serves 5-6)

500g pack fresh pasta

1 pack smoked salmon trimmings

200g broccoli florets (cooked)

300ml tub creme fraiche

100g grated mature cheddar

extra cheese to serve

Method

  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions.
  • Meanwhile dry fry the smoked salmon trimmings for a few minutes then add the broccoli and heat through.
  • Turn the heat low and add the creme fraiche and cheese, stir until melted.
  • Serve the pasta with a good dollop of sauce on top and extra cheese to taste.

This recipe needs no extra seasoning as the smoked salmon and cheese are salty enough. It is also pretty healthy as the smoked salmon contains “good fats” and the calcium in the cheese prevents too much fat being absorbed (source bbc.co.uk). Broccoli is an all round “super vegetable” providing¬†a good source of ¬†Thiamin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. (source nutritiondata).
