Ham & Leek Pasta

Another quick & easy pasta dish with only a few ingredients! I used cooked, sliced ham that you would usually use for sandwiches but you could use leftover gammon or even cooked bacon.


Serves 4 Approx 87p per serving

Prep time 10 minutes Cooking time 15 minutes

Level 🍴





  • 2 medium leeks, sliced
  • 1 120g pack cooked ham, chopped
  • 200g dried pasta, Fusilli or Penne work well
  • 150ml 1/2 fat crème fraiche
  • 40g unsalted butter
  • Salt & Pepper

Cook the pasta according to pack instructions in large pan of boiling, salted water.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan & add the sliced leeks. Cook until soft, season & add the chopped ham. 

Stir in the crème fraiche & allow to bubble for a couple of minutes. Check the seasoning & adjust if needed.

Reserve a cup full of the pasta water then drain the pasta.

Add the pasta to the ham & leek sauce & stir well. If the sauce is a little too thick for your liking add a some of the reserved pasta water to loosen it up a bit.

Serve hot.
