Many supermarkets do packs of smoked salmon trimmings. They are cheaper and are already sliced into little pieces which is perfect for pasta dishes.


  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the tagliatelle for 10 minutes, adding the peas for the last 2 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile place the cream cheese in a medium saucepan and gently heat for 2 minutes. Add the salmon, lemon juice, half the chives and season well with black pepper.

  3. Drain the pasta reserving a little of the cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pan and pour over the smoked salmon mixture. Add a little cooking liquid to make it saucy then serve scattered with the chives & lemon zest.
