Smoked Salmon Pasta

With warm weather here pasta can sometimes be a little heavy. As much as I love different tomato-based sauces, they can be a little to hearty in the summer. I’ve never been a fan of heavy cream sauces, especially in 30° heat. Having a pasta dish that is dressed simply can be better than one with a heavy sauce.

This stripped down pasta has flavour and is light enough for those summer nights when something beside salad is needed. The smoked salmon also classes up the pasta from plain Jane to spectacular.

*There are so many packaged smoked salmon products out there. Check with the store or distributor to make sure the process or liquid smoke used is gluten-free.

Smoked Salmon Pasta (from Style at Home October 2010)
Combine 400g cooked gluten free fettuccine with 2 tbs crispy fried capers and torn smoked salmon slices. Add dill, olive oil, lemon juice, grainy mustard, sea salt and cracked black pepper. Toss to coat and serve.
