  • 1 can John West Wild Red or Pink Salmon (213g)
  • 400g (14oz) pasta shells
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 50g (2oz) pine nuts
  • 8-10 sage leaves, torn into pieces
  • 200g (7oz) goat’s cheese, broken into pieces
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Step 1

To prepare our Salmon Pasta with Goat’s Cheese Recipe cook the pasta in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or according to pack instructions, until tender.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently fry the garlic and pine nuts until lightly browned for about 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the torn sage leaves.

Step 3

Next, break the John West Salmon into small pieces. Drain the cooked pasta and return it to the saucepan, adding the salmon, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts and sage.

Step 4

Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Add the goat’s cheese, and then stir the ingredients together gently.

Share the pasta between four warm plates or bowls. Serve at once.
