Cheesy Leek & Bacon Pasta



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 11 oz leeks , halved and finely sliced
  • 8 rashers smoked streaky bacon , sliced
  • 14 oz pasta shapes
  • 4 oz herb & garlic soft cheese


  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the leeks and 2 tbsp water, and cook for about 10 mins until very soft. Add the bacon, turn up the heat and fry until cooked.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta following pack instructions. Drain and reserve a mug of the cooking water.
  • Spoon cheese into the leek and bacon mix, adding some of the reserved cooking water. Season and stir gently over a low heat until melted. Toss through the cooked pasta, adding a little more cooking water, if needed, to help the sauce coat the pasta.
