Creamy Salmon Pasta

Check out the latest recipe from Ness’s blog, Mums in the Kitchen!

 

This is another one of those genius mummy moments I had – despite this meal being one threw together using some leftover salmon & cream cheese. You (and the kids) won’t believe this delicious, creamy meal is so low in calories! It comes in at just 165 calories per serve – so hard to believe! That’s using the slim pasta, but it’s still low-cal if you use any old pasta. Fab for the whole family!

 

Ingredients
1/2 large cauliflower, chopped
125g low-fat cream cheese
Olive oil spray
1 red onion, chopped
1clove garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
100g smoked salmon
500g slim pasta (I used fettuccini) or 200g any standard pasta
1/2 broccoli, chopped

Method
Steam cauliflower then purée with a hand-held blender or food processor. Add cream cheese & combine.

Steam broccoli. Cook pasta if necessary.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and spray with oil. Add onion & garlic and sauté until soft & brown. Add mustard and cook 1 minute.

Add smoked salmon & cauliflower mixture and stir. Add broccoli & pasta and stir to combine.  Serve.
