Method

With lemon for zing and spinach for bulk, this creamy salmon and super greens pasta would make a great midweek meal when time is tight. Serve alongside two portions of your favourite vegetables.

  1. For the sauce, mix cream cheese for creaminess with half the lemon (zest and juice) for zing. Season well and set aside.
  2. Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the onion and garlic together for 10 minutes, until soft and fragrant. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to pack instructions.
  3. Add the green beans to the frying pan and cook for 1 minute, then add spinach for bulk in batches, wilting as it goes. When the pasta is ready, drain and reserve a measuring jug of the pasta water.
  4. Return the pasta to the saucepan and stir through the cheese mix and salmon for richness, loosening with the remaining lemon juice and a little pasta water until all the pasta is coated. Stir through the greens, mix well and serve garnished with lemon zest.
