Rating: (1 rated)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/2 pound lean smoky bacon
  • 3-4 medium leeks, halved lengthwise, sliced 1-inch thick, then washed and dried
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons thyme, chopped
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pound penne rigate or whole grain penne
  • Grated Pecorino cheese

Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the penne.

Heat the EVOO in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and crisp; add the leeks, garlic, thyme and pepper. Sauté for 5-6 minutes, then deglaze the pan with the wine. Add the tomatoes and cover the pan. Cook the tomatoes until they burst, 10-12 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.

Salt the boiling water and cook the penne to al dente. Add a little of the starchy cooking water to the sauce just before draining the pasta. Toss the pasta with the sauce and cheese.
