300g tagliatelle

2 tbsp olive oil

2 handfuls of peas, fresh or frozen

2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped

200g low fat crème fraîche

A good handful of fresh dill, chopped

75g sun-blushed tomatoes, roughly chopped

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

150g sliced smoked salmon, cut into strips

1 lemon, zested

Juice of 1/2 lemon, to serve

 

Large saucepan

Frying pan

 

20 mins
Serves 4

This is a great meal to throw together in just minutes and it’s really filling. You can pick up sun-blushed tomatoes in the supermarket. They are a much brighter colour than sun-dried tomatoes and a little less intense in flavour. Alternatively roast some halved cherry tomatoes with a little olive oil with sea salt and black pepper at about 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6, for about 40 minutes.

 

Cook the pasta in a large saucepan according to the instructions on the packet. In the last few minutes of the pasta cooking time and drain.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the garlic and fry gently for 1 minute. Add the crème fraîche, peas and heat through. Add the dill, tomatoes and a good pinch of salt and black pepper and stir through. Finally add the salmon strips and hot tagliatelle and toss everything together until coated.
Serve each portion with a generous squeeze of lemon juice.
