Ideal when you are short on time, yet want a delicious warming meal.

1 tbsp olive oil

300g leeks, halved and finely sliced

8 rashers smoked streaky bacon, sliced

400g pasta shapes

100g herb & garlic soft cheese

In a large non-stick frying pan, heat the oil then add the leeks and 2 tablespoons of water and cook for about 10 minutes until very soft.

Add the bacon, turn up the heat and fry until cooked.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta following the instructions.

Drain and reserve a mug of the cooking water.

Spoon the soft cheese in with the leek and bacon, adding some of the reserved cooking water.

Season with salt and pepper then stir gently over a low heat until melted.

Mix through the cooked pasta, adding a little more cooking water, if needed, to help the sauce coat the pasta then serve.
