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





2 medium leeks, sliced

1 120g pack cooked ham, chopped

200g dried pasta, Fusilli or Penne work well

150ml 1/2 fat creme 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 creme 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.
