Salmon and avocado spaghetti

by Elena Levati

Salmon and avocado spaghetti: a wonderful variation of the creamy salmon and avocado pasta that I posted HERE last year.
The fresh salmon used in that recipe is here replaced by the smoked one, whose intense and decisive notes go well with the natural creamy texture of the avocado and the neutral goodness of the ricotta that makes the dish lighter then the first in wich I used robiola cheese.

A very simple and quick first course which, however, can guarantee success! You have to try it: it takes only 15 minutes!
