Fish pasta with cream cheese and dill

pasta

I have always been a big fan of fish, not only fresh kinds, but I find ‘processed’ kinds like smoked and canned offer interesting flavours and are easy to use as an ingredient toos. Canned oily fish in particular provide long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and when eaten with bones, calcium and phosphorus too.

Take:

200g pasta shapes

100g frozen green peas

150g cream cheese

100g smoked salmon

90g canned sardines, drained

a sprinkle of dill

Make:

  1. Cook pasta shapes according to packet instruction. Around a minute before you drain this, add the frozen peas. 
  2. Drain the pasta and peas, return to the hot saucepan, combine with the cream cheese. 
  3. Add the fish, breaking the flesh along the way, then the dill.
  4. Serve with a wedge of lemon.
