Creamy Salmon Tagliatelle Pasta

Creamy Salmon Tagliatelle | The Mother Cooker

I feel a bit like a fraud calling this a recipe, but alas. Some people might never know to pull these ingredients together and make a meal. So I’ll push on, mainly because it’s delicious and one that went down a storm with my daughter. Pasta is such a comfort food, but I am especially fond of tagliatelle. It’s my go to pasta choice, I’ll pick it over any other. I love the way sauce clings to it, is that a thing? I’m making it a thing.

This meal is so super simple to pull together, it’s ready in 20 mins. If you use fresh tagliatelle, it would come together 5 minutes quicker. Super filling and delicious, all you need is some garlic and herb flavoured cream cheese to make it sing. I like to cook my salmon during a weekend meal prep and then this dish is even quicker to pull together. Cooked salmon lasts for 4 days in an air tight container in the fridge. Simply gently warm the salmon through by stirring into the pasta.
