In fact, this recipe is nothing more than spaghetti with leeks and mascarpone (and some bacon). But you will notice it gives a flavor explosion in your mouth. The sweet braised leeks combines delicious with the creamy mascarpone, the salty bacon and spicy garlic. You can use this as a base recipe and vary for example by replacing the bacon with sundried tomatoes (a vegetarian version) or to mix some arugula through the leek cream for a nutty flavor. Although is it necessary to make adjustments for this recipe? For me certainly not, it’s just perfect as we speak.
