Sometimes we are all in need of a quick weeknight dinner but also want something a tad more fancy. Don’t we? Let me introduce you on my take on Tagliatelle with Salmon. Add some freshly grated Parmesan and mmmmmhhh… you are in Pasta heaven!
The Tagliatelle with Salmon is cooked fast and, most importantly, is a delicious meal for the whole family!
And if you are big eaters like we are, just add the last 100g of the Tagliatelle of the packet, so you don’t have that open packet of Pasta in your kitchen pantry.
Why add pasta water to your Tagliatelle with Salmon?
One of the best tricks, I learned over the years from the chefs I worked with, is to keep some pasta water and to add it to the sauce. It will bind your sauce to the pasta while also improving the flavour and texture of the sauce for you.
That’s awesome, isn’t it?
So this definitely is one of my favourite and fastest pasta recipes. Try it!
