Smoked Salmon & Spinach Pasta

Seafood Recipes: Smoked Salmon & Spinach Pasta Recipe

The creamy Alfredo sauce with tangy capers and sun-dried tomatoes, and the smoked salmon complement each other well. Spinach adds great colour.  For a delightful addition, try  a glass or two of  King Valley 2009 Pinot Grigio. with its complex flavours of apple and pear, and a dry finish. Or maybe you might like to choose another of our many declicious white wines.

Our Favourite Wine Match:

 We picked King Valley 2009 Pinot Grigio. Nice fresh fruit flavours and a crisp dry finish... a great alternative to Chardonnay. The perfect partner to both pasta and fish dishes, like our Salmon & Spinach Pasta. Or perhaps try another Dry White Wine.
