Ingredients

1 tbsp sunflower oil

15g butter

2-3 leeks, trimmed of tough green leaves and finely sliced

300g fusilli pasta

200g pack Asda Smoked Bacon Lardons

250g Asda Smart Price Mushrooms, chopped

200g bag Asda Frozen Scallops

Method

1
Heat 2 tsp of the oil and the butter in a pan. Add the leeks and stir once, then cover and cook gently for 10-15 minutes. Tip into a bowl and keep warm.
2
Fill a large pan with boiling water and add the pasta. Boil for 10-12 minutes.
3
Cook the lardons in a non-stick pan until the fat starts to crisp. Add to the leeks, leaving the fat in the pan. Cook the mushrooms in the fat until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add to the leeks and bacon.
4
Wipe the pan. Add the rest of the oil and cook the scallops over a low heat for 5 minutes. Drain the pasta and serve with the leeks, bacon, mushrooms and scallops.
