Tagliatelle of Smoked Salmon

I first sampled this in the Café de Flore in Paris’s St. Germaine district and for me it always evokes memories of Paris and left bank luxury. It’s simple and quick to make and you can add a little white wine for a special occasion.

The addition of mild pepper spices will kick start your taste buds in preparation for the rich creamy sauce of this wonderful tagliatelle recipe.
