"This is our family's take on a dish my husband saw on TV (I believe the original used pancetta and some hard-to-find ingredients). It's super tasty and quick. Always a big hit at my house and we rarely have leftovers."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Fry diced bacon in a large skillet until browned, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon into a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in skillet. Cook and stir leek and cremini mushrooms in the hot bacon drippings until mushrooms are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Return bacon to skillet and stir in bow-tie pasta. Gently mix in sour cream and season with black pepper and parsley. Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.

This is a very forgiving recipe. I did not have mushrooms so substituted some frozen peas. I only had microwave bacon so sauteed the leeks in olive oil instead. And I only had low fat sour cream. Still it was awesome! Family loved it. I might try throwing in some diced chicken next time, cooking it with the leeks.

We made this recipe tonight and loved it. We didn't have any mushrooms at home, but it was wonderful without them. This recipe is flexible so that you can add more leeks (as we did) and other ingredients to suit your tastes, just remember to balance any added dry with moist ingredients. It was definitely a hit at our house, and we'll make it again.
