15 Minute Salmon Pasta

This is the easiest bowl of comforting food you can make which is packed with beneficial nutrients such as omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins C, D, iron, folate and a portion of veg as one of you 5-a-day.

I’m using hot smoked salmon, which means I only need to cook the pasta and then stir everything together, using just one pan making it a really easy-to-make (and clean up after) meal.

Serves 2


  • 150g spaghetti
  • 140g baby leaf spinach
  • 80g cream cheese
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 20g chives, finely chopped
  • 280g hot smoked salmon


  • Cook the pasta for 3 minutes less than the packet instructions, saving some of the pasta cooking water before draining.
  • Over a low heat, add the spinach to the almost cooked-through pasta and allow to wilt before adding the cream cheese, lemon zest and juice, chives, smoked salmon, and season to taste with pepper. Add more pasta cooking water if needed to loosen the sauce and enjoy!
