  1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the leek and garlic for 5-6 minutes, or until the leek is soft.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes, or until tender.
  4. Drain the pasta (reserving 4 tbsp of water) and toss with the smoked salmon, green beans, leek mixture, lemon juice and creme fraiche. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately with the lemon wedges.
