Recipe: Salmon pasta roll-ups with pink sauce

The 12 first courses lunch
March 29, 2011

I love pasta with smoken salmon, and I try often different recipes: for the 12 first courses lunch I decided to prepare a pasta with a pink sauce, flavored with leek and lemon zest, and stuff some slices of salmon with it.

This is a recipe from the 12 first courses lunch, so the doses are for small samples. Keep that in mind if you are considering only one first course.

Makes four small plates:
1/2 leek
1 tbsp butter
2cm lemon zest
70ml single cream
1 tbsp tomato sauce (or enough to make the sauce pink)
50g trucioli (or other short fresh pasta of your choice)
4 slices of smoked salmon
4 sprigs of curly leaf parsley

Chop the leek and fry in butter for 10 minutes. Add single cream, lemon zest and tomato sauce.
Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, drain well and season with the pink sauce.
Divide the dough into slices of salmon, roll and place in four small individual small plates or ramekins. Garnish with curly parsley and serve hot.

A tip: Another recipe called for half leek fried in butter (the Rustic Pasta with Poppy Seeds), so I sliced ​​a whole leek, fried it and then divided into two pans, to prepare the two sauces separately.
