Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound dry pappardelle pasta
  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes (about 3 cups)

Preparation

  1. 1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook bacon, stirring often, until crispy (8-10 minutes); transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate, reserving 1 tablespoon bacon fat in skillet. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions in salted water; reserve 1/2 cup pasta water.
  2. 2. While pasta cooks, heat skillet and reserved fat over medium heat; add leeks and cherry tomatoes. Cook, stirring, until leeks begin to soften (about 5 minutes). Add reserved pasta water; simmer, partially covered, until tomatoes have burst and leeks are tender (12-15 minutes). Toss pasta with leek mixture and bacon and arrange in 6 serving bowls.
