  • 170 g pasta 6oz
  • 2 leeks
  • 260 g sweetcorn 9oz
  • 150 g bacon 5.25 oz
  • 1 pinch garlic powder and black pepper
  • 250 g cream cheese 9 oz
  1. Slice the leek and place it in a pan with the pasta and sweetcorn. Boil until the pasta is tender.
  2. Chop the bacon straight into a non stick pan with scissors and cook according to preference. I cooked it until it was done but soft, then turned the heat right down and left it crisping up until the pasta was done.
  3. When the pasta and vegetables are cooked drain them and stir in the bacon, any bacon juices and the garlic and pepper.
  4. Give it a good mix over a low flame so the cheese melts in - and devour.
Recipe Notes
  • use low fat cream cheese if you wish
  • If you have a non stick frying pan you may not need oil
