Recipe in: One Dish Dinners

Pasta with Bacon and Leeks

Total time: 20 minutes
     This is my answer to the much more decadent Fettuccine Alfredo and a variation on Spaghetti Carbonara.  Leeks are best in this, as they are mild, but you could substitute 2 onions, just sauté them until very tender and starting to brown.

Pasta with Bacon and Leeks Ingredients:


Note:  I used whole wheat pasta.
