Recipe - Creamy Pork, Leek and Lardon pasta sauce

Having noticed that pork and leek recipes are very welcome with my readers I now shamelessly play on this with another recipe containing those ingredients. Bad Mikey... ;)

I couldn't really decide what to cook the other day and it wasn't until I was walking around the supermarket that I decided on this. I had two leeks at home that were close to getting past it I grabbed the other stuff and got home to get down to some cooking.

Oh yeah, this photo is the first one where I have used my new light. Not really there yet, but some more experimentation and I think it will really help me getting some better photos for you guys.

Ingredients (serves 2 - 4)
2 leeks, fairly thinly sliced
100g smoked lardons
500g pork mince
300 ml creme fraiche
Olive oil
Lemon juice
Pasta, cooked by the instructions on the package

Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Add the leek slices and let it cook until the leeks start to soften.

Add the lardons and fry for another couple of minutes before adding the pork mince. Season generously. Let all this fry away until the mince is cooked through.

Pour in the creme fraiche and let it all bubble away for a couple of minutes. Add lemon juice and seasoning according to taste.

Serve with pasta.
