Creamy spagetti with salmon and dried tomatoes

This is one of my favorite recipes I’ve stumbled across the last days. We had this on Saturday and I thought it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t share it.

25 minutes | 4 portions

ingredients:
♥ 2 x 125 g smoked salmon
♥ 225 g cauliflower
♥ 1 boat garlic
♥ 1 dl milk
♥ 1 dl cream
♥ 2 dl dried tomatoes
♥ fresh basil and dill
♥ 2-3 ts olive oil
♥ salt, black pepper
♥ 350 g tagliatelle or spaghetti
♥ parmesan or cheese for serving

Step-by-step

Boil cauliflower with a crushed garlic clove in milk and cream.
Mix it in a food processor and add a few tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Break the salmon fillets into large chunks, mix with sun-dried tomatoes and chopped herbs in a bowl.
Mix in 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.



Cook the pasta as directed on the package and strain the water.
Mix the cauliflower sauce in the pasta, heat gently until it boils, add the fish and tomato mixture to finish.
Let it boil slowly for about 2-3 minutes until the fish is hot.


Serve the pasta with parmesan or grated cheese.

I hope it tastes as good as it did for me. I still have som left overs which will be brought with me to work tomorrow.

Friday night dinner

With a couple of days off to recharge my batteries I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing.

Since Wednesday at 1 pm I had two, almost three days off. I didn’t make any plans because work had really torn me apart and I desperately needed a break. On Friday tough, after not taking one step outside since Wednesday, I drove to my mums house for a dinner with her and my youngest brother.

We all brought food and helped to prepare it and in between the cooking I cut my mums hair. Don’t know if I just got lucky but the chicken was amazing, my own receipt that I just have to share on the blog.

We ended the night with a couple of rounds playing Uno, and I couldn’t help but to think about Oma, her favorite game.
