Penne Pasta

Bring the restaurant home with this refreshing salmon dish, seasoned with lemon & dill. Recipe created by @modernfoodstories

INGREDIENTS

  • 170g ZENB Penne Pasta
  • 35g mange tout or sugar snap peas, sliced into thin strips lengthways
  • 125g cream cheese, creme fraiche or (chive) vegan cream cheese
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon + zest + wedges to serve
  • 1 tsp dijon or wholegrain mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp mini capers, drained
  • 100g smoked salmon, sliced into thin strips
  • 6g fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Optional chives if not in cream cheese
  • Optional 1 small garlic clove, minced

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Boil the ZENB Penne Pasta for about 10 minutes until al-dente. Just before the pasta is ready, blanch the mange tout for 30 seconds in the pasta water. Drain both together and rinse.

2.

Squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon into the cream cheese. Add mustard and season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.

3.

Toss pasta, capers, smoked salmon and dill together with the cream cheese mix until fully coated. Top with lemon zest and more black pepper. Option to drizzle with olive oil to serve.

Tasty Tips

If using garlic, it’s best to either fry in a little olive oil for 1 minute to take the rawness off the garlic or use 1 clove of crushed garlic confit

 

If serving the pasta at a later date you may wish to add a little water to soften up the sauce again with a drizzle of olive oil
