Speedy Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

The great thing about this dish is that it's quick, easy, cheap, only uses one dish and is healthy (apart from the cream!). Also, when it comes to things like adding the cheese, salt and pepper, etc., you can just experiment - add as much or little as you want and tailor it to your taste. If using the white wine, add it sparingly. I almost killed the whole thing first time by adding too much. Whilst you're at it, why not replace the single cream with crème fraiche?

I've included the quantities for two portions so that if cooking for yourself you can fridge half and eat it the following night.

Time: 30mins
Price: £1.01 p/portion (excluding wine)
Serves: 2

- 120g pack smoked salmon trimmings
- 200g spaghetti (or macaroni)
- 150ml single cream
- Lemon juice of 1/2 a lemon
- Salt and pepper
- Grated cheese of your choice (parmesan is good)
- a little white wine (optional)


1) Put a large pan of salted water on the boil.
2) Once boiling, add your spaghetti and boil for about 10 minutes, or till done.
3) Once cooked, drain and replace on hob on a low heat.
4) Add cream, white wine (if using), cheese, salt and pepper, lemon juice, and salmon. Mix it all together.
5) Serve with a heap of crispy salad.
