Smoked Salmon Pasta
Cauliflower Dijon

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        We don't often use Crème Fraiche - a wee extravagance to go with the Smoked Salmon.  Use yogurt if you prefer, or sour cream.  

Pasta with Smoked Salmon

Total time: 30 minutes
    I use crème fraiche for this.  You can substitute sour cream if you like - it will be a bit more tart; or heavy cream  - it will be a bit higher in calories, or Greek yogurt.
