Gluten-free salmon pasta

salmon pasta


  • 1 gluten-free vegetable stock cube
  • 200g gluten-free pasta, such as penne or fusilli
  • 100g green beans, trimmed
  • 100g smoked salmon, roughly chopped
  • 50g baby spinach
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • 50g soft cheese (ensure it’s gluten-free)
  • ½-1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan



Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, crumble in the stock cube and stir to dissolve. Tip in the pasta and cook following pack instructions, about 8-10 mins.

Add the green beans 1 min before the end of the cooking time.

Drain the pasta and green beans, reserving a little of the cooking water. Tip the pasta and beans back into the pan, then stir in the smoked salmon, spinach, spring onion and soft cheese. Add a little of the pasta water to loosen the cheese and create a sauce, then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Squeeze in the lemon juice to taste, and stir well.

Serve topped with the parmesan.
