This meal came together the other day when a friend at work gave me some leeks from her CSA. Thank you Wendy! I love leeks. I usually make Chicken with Leeks and Bacon. I did not have alot of chicken so I decided to add pasta to the meal.
I cooking up some chopped bacon. I removed the bacon from the pan and wiped it out. Then I sauteed some leeks in olive oil and a knob of butter. I cut the chicken breasts into cubes and dredged the cubes in flour and thyme and added them to the saute pan. After the chicken began to brown I added some white wine and covered the pan until it was cooked through.
Meanwhile I am making the pasta. I use the recipe from Tide and Thyme. The pasta was perfect! I made only 1/2 into "rags" and cut the other half into fettuccine noodles and popped them in the freezer.
I boiled the pasta rags and when they were just al dente I added them to the pan with the leeks and chicken. I added a little butter to give it a nice glaze (did you get that Heidi?). The bacon was sprinkled on top. A little cheese and crushed red pepper and that was dinner!
The pasta machine was my mother's. When I was putting it away I noticed the price tag!
My mom was an excellent shopper.
