  • 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
  • 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.

  • Fill a large pan with boiling water and add the pasta. Boil for 10-12 minutes.

  • 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.
