supper for one for two


No spaghetti, no parmesan, and no eggs so sadly no opportunity to make newfound and now beloved recipe for carbonara sauce. I have only just learnt how to make one of my most favourite meals/hangover cures and you cannot imagine my disappointment with the fridge for not providing the necessary ingredients to practise it.
This didn't really make up for it but was enjoyable despite two thirds of it being inhaled by the one who said he didn't want any...

-Put some pasta on according to the instructions on the packet - this is not an exercise in perfect timing skills.
-Fry some chopped bacon and when done, throw in an onion and a couple of cloves of garlic to fry in the fat plus a little extra butter.
-When the onions are soft add 1 chopped leek and fry for a while until it turns translucent. -Throw in a handful of leftover roast chicken, some chopped parsley, salt and pepper and about half a cup of frozen peas.
-Pour in some chicken stock - as much as you want depending on how soupy you'd like it to be (at this point my head was pretty soupy too) and simmer for about 10/12 minutes or until things have thickened a bit.
- pour in a bit of cream and add the pasta to the soup/sauce. scatter some more parsley on top.
parmesan would be nice. Carbonara sauce would also be nice.
