Pasta and Meat Sauce

Last night I made a quick meat sauce and some bow-tie pasta. Side dishes included brocolli and
leeks. I really liked the leeks, sauted in a a little butter and olive oil with some fresh parm on top.

Leeks with Parmesan Cheese

  • 3 leeks, cut in half lengthwise and cleaned then cut into half moons (white and pale green parts only)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan

Heat oil and butter in a cast iron skillet, add leeks and stir fry to cook for about 2 mins, add broth and cover - cook for 2 mins, uncover and cook until liquid is evaporated. Sprinkle with parmesan and broil briefly to brown cheese

  1. What a nice idea to make those leeks as a side dish! I'll try these delish during this week to go with a fish or something like that
