Pasta with leeks and parmesan
Pasta ai porri
Pasta with leeks is one of these surprisingly simple and tasty recipes that can feed a hungry family in no time for less money.
I first came across a pasta with leeks recipe somewhere on the Internet, but as often before I could not remember where, when I needed it, and a new search did not help. Although Gordon Ramsey has a pasta with leeks recipe, he complicates matters with pancetta, mushrooms and crème fraiche. So I made a plain version from memory instead.
The beauty of this recipe is that the leeks mellow into a kind of cream after having been exposed to hot olive oil for the time it takes to cook short, dry pasta. Parmesan and chervil enhance the flavour. And the result is plain good.
