Instructions

Cook the Pasta
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • When the water is boiling, add the linguine then bring back to the boil. Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Prep the Veg

  • Meanwhile, remove the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Cut the remaining piece in half widthways.
  • Take one half (double for 4p) and halve lengthways then thinly slice.
  • Clean and slice the mushrooms.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Time to Fry
3
  • Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the bacon, sliced leek, mushrooms and garlic and fry for 6-8 mins. IMPORTANT: Cook lardons thoroughly.
  • Add the pasta, cheese, half the creme fraiche (double for 4p) and half the pesto.
  • Stir well and cook for 1-2 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Finish and Serve
