Ingredients

  • 300 g Dried pasta
  • 300 g Broccoli See Note 1.

For the sauce

  • 250 g Creme fraiche See Note 2.
  • 15 g Dill See Note 3.
  • 1 Lemon Zest and juice
  • 200 g Smoked Salmon
  • Salt and pepper

Optional extras

  • 2 tbsp Capers See Note 4.
  • 100 g Petit pois See Note 5.

Instructions

  1. Add the pasta to a pan of boiling salted water and cook according to the pack instructions (normally about 10 minutes).

  2. 3 minutes before the pasta has finished cooking, add in the broccoli.

  3. Drain the cooked pasta and broccoli and put back into the hot saucepan.

  4. Add all of the sauce ingredients to the pasta in the hot pan and stir through. (The heat of the pasta will warm the sauce.)

Recipe Notes

Note 1 - Broccoli
I like using Tenderstem Broccoli but regular is fine too. Cut into small pieces.

Note 2 - Creme Fraiche
I tend to use the half fat Creme Fraiche as I can't tell the difference and it's a lighter option. Either is fine.

Note 3 - Dill
Dill is one of the only herbs where I think fresh is much better. If you can get it, it kind of makes this dish. Some supermarkets sell it frozen too and I like to keep a bag in the freezer for this.

Otherwise, mint works here too. Dried would be okay, but just okay. I wouldn't recommend dried though as they don't have time to cook and soften. If they are all you have, better than nothing though! Just use 1 tsp if using dried.

Note 4 - Capers
If you have any capers in the fridge or cupboard, they add an extra ZING to this dish and take it up a notch.

Note 5 - Peas or Petit Pois
Just add these when you add the broccoli to the pasta water if you fancy some extra vegetables.
