  • 2 leek washed and sliced into rounds

  • 400g pasta penne or similar

  4. Fry, stirring regularly until leeks softened and bacon cooked through.

Handy Hint

Add other veg (cooked peas?) to up the 5-a-day quotient.

    This is a fabulous recipe! I used chicken instead of bacon and then added a bit of grated cheese on the top and chucked it in the oven to brown (only because i had the time!) and it was absolutely DELISH! Highly recommended for a quick lovely pasta dish. :) DD wasn't keen tho but she's not a fan of meat.
