Penne pasta with salmon – Perfect for kids !


“Penne” pasta 1 packet

5 spring onions, chopped

½ bouquet of fresh dill, washed and hand-cut

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

* Dear parents, when preparing this recipe for your kids,

   if the aroma overwhelms you and you wish to…keep it to yourself,

   you can add two extra “grown ups” ingredients:

1 tbsp of salmon eggs

1 Vodka shot


Follow the packet instructions to boil the pasta (we want it al dente).

Drain but don’t discard the water. We’ll use some of it later.

In a non-stick frying pan, pour 2 tbsp of olive oil and sauté the onions for 3-4 min.

(for the grown ups recipe: here you can extinguish with the Vodka.)

Add the fresh dill.

Pour in the “Katiki” cheese and blend well.

Add the pasta into the pan with 2-3 tbsp of the water in which you boiled the pasta.

Turn the heat off and add the smoked salmon. Turn with the spoon once or twice and serve into the dish. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and some fresh dill.

(for the grown ups recipe: add a tbsp of salmon eggs for decoration on top of the penne).



   Storage some of the water in which you boiled the pasta in your refrigerator.

   If you have leftovers, pour some of  the water into the pan to reheat your pasta.

   This way, your dish will be creamy once again.

                                    EXTRA TIP 2:

                                    Do you want to gain more vitamins from this dish? Instead of the classic, white pasta,

                                    you can use the green, spinach-made spaghetti.
