On 6th April 2016, This was Dinner…
Can you tell I had a bit of a ‘use it all up’ moment by the name of the recipe? Well I did and it turns out it was a great dinner too.
- Finely slice some leeks
- Cut some brie into pieces
- Grate some cheddar
- Cut some cooking chorizo into bite sized pieces
- Tear up some basil
- Get streaky bacon, macaroni, frozen peas, soft cheese, English mustard, oil & seasoning ready
- Preheat the oven to 190°c (fan)
Throw it together…
Heat a frying pan and cook the strips of bacon. Remove and set aside. Cook the chorizo until it releases it’s oil and remove and set aside.
Heat some oil in the pan and cook the leeks until softened. Meanwhile, cook the macaroni until al dente. Drain and refresh reserving a little of the cooking water.
Add the peas to the leeks and cook for a couple more minutes.
Snip the bacon into bits and then mix everything together along with the soft cheese and the brie. Add some of the pasta water if required. Season well and then bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheddar and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
Dish it up…
Sprinkle with basil and serve.
As you can see, there was a side of chicken wings too!
