SMOKED SALMON, FETTUCCINE AND BLUE CHEESE

This is a very tasty, quick and easy recipe, and I served it with a red cabbage salad. I used fettuccine but any kind of pasta will work for this.

The red cabbage salad was a great match for the fettuccine dish, and it was easy to make as I added apples, celery and mayonnaise which didn't take long.

You could add a salad of your choice, or even any type of vegetables.

Red cabbage is the healthiest of the cabbage family  and it's red colour comes from flavonoids, while the sharp taste is from the sulphur based compounds.  Cabbage is also healthy as it contains necessary fibre and several vitamins and minerals,

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 6-10 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients

200g Fettuccine
Boiling water
1 tblsp oil

SAUCE
60g creamy blue cheese, crumbled
½ cup cream (I used Cream for cooking as lower in fat)
50 g smoked salmon, sliced
2 tblsp capers
Juice of ½ lemon

Method

Boil the water and a bit of oil, and cook the fettuccine, as per the instructions on the packet. I cooked it for about 6 minutes.

While this is cooking, place the cream and the blue cheese in a bowl and microwave them for 1-2 minutes, stirring a few times during cooking.

Blend the salmon, capers and the lemon juice together.


Then add this mixture to the cheese mixture, and microwave it for under 1 minute.

Drain the noodles, and toss them through the hot, drained fettuccine, and serve them while hot.
