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.
