Smoked Salmon Carbonara

Main courseServes 4

# Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. When the water is boiling add the fresh pasta. If using fresh pasta, it will only take a few minutes to cook. When cooked drain and toss in a little extra virgin olive oil. # Meanwhile take a large heavy based pan and over a low heat gently melt a little knob of butter. # Sweat off the finely chopped onion until it softens, toss in the strips of smoked salmon and gently stir until it turns a soft pink colour - this should only take 2-3 minutes. # Add the cream, season with a good grind of black pepper. # Add the cooked pasta and stir through gently, serve immediately. Tip: A little squeeze of lemon over it just before serving will really make the flavours sing.
