This pasta with smoked salmon and sun-dried tomatoes brings Summer back into your house. And that’s exactly what I could use in this dreary wintry weather. The salty salmon, spicy garlic, creamy pasta finished with the slightly sour creme fraiche is a bold but very successful combination. And the dish is on the table within 15 minutes. That’s also a nice to have, especially on a busy weeknight full of clubs!
