Sometimes a rush and some basic ingredients create the most wonderful dishes. And one of them became the absolute favorite of my husband, hence the name. The secret ingredient? Lots of fresh dill, I’ve already tried it without and it honestly makes all the difference…
- Cook pasta. I like to use rigatoni for this dish, but penne or any short, ribbed pasta would do.
- In the meantime, cut up some spring onions, slice a bunch of ‘candy tomatoes‘ (it’s a kind of very sweet cherry tomato, but longer, like a teeny tiny version of roma tomatoes – it has to be really sweet) and toss them in a pan, pot, wok, whatever. Let them simmer and get warm.
- Add mascarpone, one big spoon will do for now. Season, but be careful with the salt…
- cause you’ll add your cooked pasta, along with little slices of smoked salmon. Keep some of the salmon apart to sprinkle over it once done. Now it’s the art to make it come together, the pasta just coated, the salmon just a different color, and heaps of chopped dill. Make sure everything is warm, but don’t overdo it.
- Serve in bowls or big plates, sprinkle with the rest of the salmon and a bit of leftover dill.
- Enjoy. Take seconds. Thirds.
Fight over the last spoon.
