Recipe: Simple Salmon and Tarragon Pasta

This recipe is super quick and easy. It's a really warming, comforting dish that is very filling. Despite some of the rich sounding ingredients, it's actually very fresh and fairly light as the vegetables are not cooked for long and it isn't a very runny or thick sauce. The fresh basil on top really makes it.

Ingredients (Serves 2)
1 Onion 
2 Cloves of Fresh Garlic 
1-2 Courgettes
Half a Pack of Mushrooms
1 Pepper
1/2 to 3/4 of a Packet of Smoked Salmon 
2 tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
2 tablespoons Tarragon
3 tablespoons (or enough to cover) of Creme Freche 
Handful of Fresh Basil
Salt and pepper

1. Boil the pasta with a dash of salt and olive oil.

2. Fry the onion and mushrooms for a few minutes until starting to go golden. Then add the garlic, pepper and courgette. If you want a slight kick I sometimes add half a fresh chilli as well at this stage, but that's optional.

3. After the veg is all looking nice and golden, add the salmon, tarragon and white wine vinegar. Mix it well together. Add a little water if necessary.

4. After a minute or so add the creme freche and stir it well, covering everything. It shouldn't be very runny. When the pasta is done mix it altogether.

5. Season to taste and then add the basil on top.
