Directions
  • Wash the leeks and cut them in half lengthwise. Then cut into oblong strips.
  • Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until al dente.
  • Heat a dash of olive oil in a large pan and sauté the leek strips. Deglaze with the liquid cream, add the juice of the lemon and 3 to 4 tablespoons of pasta water. Season with salt, pepper and thyme, mix everything well and simmer gently.
  • Drain the finished pasta and then add directly to the pan. Thoroughly mix the pasta and sauce.
  • Finally, divide among deep plates and garnish with thyme leaves.
    Buon appetito!

Tip

By cutting the leeks into long strips, you can roll them up very well with the spaghetti or long pasta.
If you use short pasta, such as gnocchetti or orecchiette for this dish, you should cut the leek into slices. This will make it easier to fork the pasta and vegetables together.
