Leeks Are Ready!

After wondering if my leeks were too small to harvest, even though it’s 5 months since they were planted (see previous post), I took the plunge and harvested a couple of the bigger ones. They are delicious!

Made a leek and bacon pasta out of these 2 lovely leeks.

The sauce is just:

2 leeks (my small ones) sliced

5 rashers of short cut bacon sliced

button mushrooms sliced

garlic crushed

stir it all up with some basil pesto, milk (or cream but I’m trying to be healthy), and plain flour to thicken

top with parmesan cheese and fresh basil

I actually licked the saucepan! Yum yum yum!!
