      What an excellent pasta Kiwi Kathy, we enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. Quick and easy to make this simple dish is memorable. Fried bacon & leeks, butter, cheese and cream, oh what a treat. I can't wait to make this again. The only change to your recipe was to vary the noodles as I didn't have any bowties, but I do now and will be making this again soon. :)

      Will admit that I changed some things in this recipe! First off, I only used 2 slices of bacon, then left out the butter & sauteed the leeks in the small amount of bacon fat that was produced! Also cut back slightly on the amount of cream, but even with all those cut-backs, we had a very nice tasting pasta dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
