  • Finely slice your leeks and put them in a large lidded pan with a glug of olive oil, a jelly stock cube, and 100ml of water. Stir for a little to coat the leeks and break down the stock and leave to cook down for 20 minutes until they are soft and creamy.
  • Whilst the leeks are cooking begin to boil a large pan of salted water for your pasta, once boiled add your pasta.
  • When your pasta is almost cooked, about 1 minute off, add it to the pan with the cooked down leeks and stir through.

  • Add a couple handfuls of grated parmesan, stir through then serve topped with olive oil & black pepper.
