I wanted to do some pasta and found I had both smoked salmon and some bacon in the fridge. I wasn't sure they would go together but after a little googling I decided it was worth a try. And the flavours worked really well together.
Small packet of smoked salmon
Packet of streaky bacon
Store bought Alfredo sauce
Nutmeg – a few grates – not too much
Pepper (and salt if it needs it when it is cooked – bacon can be pretty salty)
To avoid using too many pots and pans, I fried off the bacon in a medium sized pot that I also used for the sauce. I used garlic infused olive oil and also added the turmeric during the frying. I had cut the bacon up into bite sized pieces.
While the bacon is cooking bring a large pot to the boil containing well salted water. Cook your pasta until al dente (I used tagliatelle). While it is cooking add your smoked salmon (cut up) and a few halved cherry tomatoes plus a good amount of pepper.
Pour in your store bought Alfredo sauce and let it heat through. Finish your sauce off with a grate or 2 of nutmeg and lashings of grated parmesan.
My only slight whinge about this dish is that the pasta slurps everywhere when you are trying to serve it.
