A classic pasta dish with a rich, creamy white wine sauce, delicious smoked salmon and fresh dill for even more flavour.

Ingredients

  • 175g (6oz) pasta shapes
  • 15g (oz) butter
  • 2tsp (10ml) oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 150ml (pt) dry white wine
  • 100g (4oz) sugar snap peas, sliced lengthways
  • 150ml (pt) double cream
  • 100g (4oz) smoked salmon cut into thin strips
  • 1tbsp (15ml) fresh chopped dill, to garnish

You can use any shaped dried pasta for this dish, but spiral shapes such as Buitoni's Riccioli seem to suit the creamy sauce particularly well.

Method

  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water, or according to the instructions on the packet.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and fry the shallots for 5 mins. Add the wine and boil rapidly until the liquid is reduced by two-thirds.
  3. Add the sugar snap peas to the pan and cook for 1 min. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the cream. Return the pan to a gentle heat and simmer for 2-3 mins until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  4. Drain the pasta well and stir into the sauce with the smoked salmon. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper and divide between tow serving bowls.
  5. Garnish the smoked salmon pasta with the chopped dill and serve immediately.
