Linguine with Salmon & Spinach Recipe


2 tbsp rapeseed oil/olive oil
1 onion, chopped finely
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
175g frozen leaf spinach
300-400g sliced smoked salmon (use fresh salmon if pregnant)
50g cream cheese
400g Linguine (or spaghetti)
Optional to serve: Grated parmesan & black pepper



  1. In a non-stick pan, heat the oil and gently sauté the onions for 5mins until soft but not coloured. Add in the garlic and cook for about a minute.
  2. Add the spinach and cook gently for about 7 minutes. Ensure it is fully heated through.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the linguine in a large pan of boiling water for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Add the cream cheese to the spinach and onion and stir through.
  5. Take the sliced smoked salmon, and flake into the pan. This will cook very quickly, so stir in and when the salmon changes colour it is ready.
  6. Drain the pasta & shake well to remove excess water and add to the pan stirring the mixture through.
  7. Divide among the plates. Enjoy!
