Fussili with leek, bacon and feta sauce

2 comments Oct 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Pasta & Gnocchi, Recipes

A nice pasta sauce if you like feta cheese. The leek and bacon fit the cheese very well, I am sure one can leave the bacon away to have a lighter dish. Easy to prepare and full of taste.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 15 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 1/2 pack of Fussili
  • 1/2 leek
  • 150 gram bacon
  • 5.5 Ounces of Feta Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable stock
  • 1 small onion
  • some olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Bring lightly salted water to boil. Boil the pasta until al dente. Drain the pasta.

Meanwhile cut the bacon in cubes. Dice the onion and cut the leek into stripes.

Heat some olive oil in a large pan. Fry the onions and the bacon for a couple of minutes, the onions should get a bit brown. Then add the leek and fry it a bit. Pour the soup into the pan and drizzle the Feta cheese into it. The cheese will dissolve in the liquid. Stir the creamy sauce and reduce the liquid until you have a thick consistency. Now add the pasta, toss and let it sit for a minute before you serve. Season with a little salt and pepper.
