Gluten Free means taste free? I don’t think so! Creamy Smoked Salmon and Dill Pasta Gluten Free!

I have to admit I am a little bit spoilt. Who can admit they have their own chef? Well  I didn’t until a few years ago, until I met a wonderful caring person who enjoyed cooking, even cooking gluten-free was not much of a challenge.

I’ve heard many times that eating gluten-free must mean taste free. Not True!! This recipe has to be one of the tastiest Gluten Free meals I’ve ever had and it doesn’t take much time at all.

I love smoked salmon whether its stuffed in a sushi roll, as part of breakfast – we have been told that smoked salmon for breakfast is extravagant – I’ll let you be the judge of that… or used in a tasty recipe like this.

The only ingredient that required changing was the pasta. If you can do home made pasta it is somthing special otherwise store-bought Gluten Free Pasta – I prefer store bought San Remo Gluten Free. Refer to this link – San Remo Gluten Free Pasta
