  • 4 spring onions chopped finely
  • 150 g smoked salmon sliced into strips
  • 6 asparagus spears chopped into short lengths
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 200 g gluten-free pasta
  • 1 heaped tbsp mascarpone
  • Grated zest of 1/2 a lemon


  1. Prepare your pasta as per the instructions on the packet. Meanwhile, start making the sauce.

  2. Take a wok and add a little olive oil, then add the spring onions and cook for 5 minutes until soft.

  3. Add the asparagus and cook for 2 minutes until it turns bright green, then add the salmon strips and cook lightly until they start to turn slightly opaque. Only cook for 1-2 minutes, otherwise they will start to crumble.

  4. Add the mascarpone, lemon zest and black pepper, stir, then heat for 2 minutes.

  5. Drain your pasta, ladle into bowls, then pour over the sauce and serve.
