Comfort food at its best, this heart filled recipe from BBC Good food is ready to eat in 20 minutes! Now who can say no to that?


1 tbsp olive oil
300g leeks, halved and finely sliced
8 rashers streaky bacon, sliced (we recommend Houghton Hams Dry Cured Streaky bacon)
400g pasta shapes (we used penne)
100g herb & garlic soft cheese (we used Boursin)

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the leeks and 2 tbsp water, and cook for about 10 mins until very soft. Add the bacon, turn up the heat and fry until cooked.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta following pack instructions. Drain and reserve a mug of the cooking water.
Spoon cheese into the leek and bacon mix, adding some of the reserved cooking water. Season and stir gently over a low heat until melted. Toss through the cooked pasta, adding a little more cooking water, if needed, to help the sauce coat the pasta.
