Pasta la Vista

Hey!!! Last week I was ill and housebound, the first day was a nightmare, thought I was dying a slow, agonizing death. The following day was a lot more bearable and I could taste things again.

For lunch I decided to make pasta; Claud is carb conscious so we hardly have pasta for supper. Inspired by Gordon Ramsay I threw together this easy mushroom and leek pasta. I added bacon… of course. The below quantities made enough for about 3 – 4 servings.

Ingredients

  • Spaghetti or any pasta you have in the cupboard
  • Approx. 3 leeks
  • Half a punnet of mixed mushrooms
  • 1 packet bacon
  • Approx. 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • ½ cup cream
  • Salt and pepper

Bacon Pasta Recipe

Method

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. (Always add pasta to boiling water)

I fried my bacon separately and set aside.

Add some oil to a pan and turn on the heat.

Chop up mushrooms and fry for about 2 – 3 minutes.

Cut leeks lengthwise and rinse, leeks often have sand in between its layers and therefore require a thorough rinse. Once done chop the leeks and add to the mushrooms along with the garlic.

Fry for about 2 – 3 minutes.

Add chicken stock and reduce the mixture by half.

Next add the cream, lower the heat and simmer for 4 – 5 minutes.

Turn off the mixture, strain the pasta and add the bacon and pasta into the sauce to absorb all the flavors.

Season with salt and pepper and SERVE!

PS: For a veggie option, don’t add bacon and use vegetable stock instead
