  • Step 3/4

    In a frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the leek, and cook for approx. 10 min, or until it starts to soften. Don't let it brown too much, if at all. Add a generous splash of pasta cooking water to the pan and continue cooking for approx. 10 min. more, or until the leek is very soft. Add the chili pepper and season with salt and pepper. Add the pancetta and cook over medium heat for approx. 5 - 10 min. Add more water if necessary, as you want to have a sauce for your pasta.
