10-minute pasta with leek and bacon

  • This is a very quick and easy dish just right for a quick supper after a nice relaxing night out.

Serves: 1
Time: 10 minutes of course

You Will Need:

  • Two ½ ounces dried pasta
  • 2 rashers bacon
  • 1 leek washed and chopped
  • Parmesan to serve
  • ½-tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to season

Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry in a little oil on a medium to high heat. Once the bacon begins to brown, add the leeks and allow them to soften.
Meanwhile begin cooking the pasta in slightly salted boiling water.
Once the pasta is cooked drain and return to the pan, season the bacon, and leek to taste and combine with the pasta.
Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the pasta to moisten.
Finally grate the parmesan cheese over the dish and serve.

If you would prefer a creamy sauce, add cream instead of olive oil.

Did you know, Leeks are a great of Vitamin C, iron and fibre and that 1 cup of chopped raw leeks contains only 57 calories?
