Recipe - Pasta with Cheesy sauce

Some times a quick pasta dish is just what the doctor ordered. It's turning colder in the evenings now so it can be nice to have a bowl of hot steaming pasta with a hearty sauce in front of you.

Pasta with Cheesy sauce (serves 2 or so)

Blue cheese, Gorgonzola or any other flavoursome cheese of your liking
1 leek, cut into slices
Smoked pancetta slices
300ml double cream
Salt and pepper

Put the pancetta under the grill until crispy, put to the side. In the meantime cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.

Melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the leek until it starts getting soft and slightly translucent. Crumble in the cheese and gently fry until it is melting. Stir in the cream and let everything gently simmer away until the sauce is starting to thicken. Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper to taste.

Drain the pasta once it's done and stir in the sauce thoroughly. Serve with the crispy pancetta on top.
