  • 300g spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 2 large zucchini, peeled into ribbons
  • 1 cup (250ml) Coles Brand Australian thickened cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest, finely grated
  • 150g baby spinach leaves
  • 200g Tassal smoked salmon, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
  • 4 lemon wedges


  • Step 1
    Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add the garlic and zucchini. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until almost tender.
  • Step 3
    Pour in the cream and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly. Add the pasta and three-quarters of the lemon zest. Toss to warm through. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the spinach and a pinch of salt and cook for 1-2 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
  • Step 5
    Divide the pasta among serving bowls. Scatter over the spinach and top with slices of smoked salmon, chives and remaining lemon zest. Serve with lemon wedges.
