This creamy leak pasta dish is a classic I love to make with my mom when I’m home. Basically finely chop up a ton (at least 2, here I went for 3) leaks, finely chop a yellow onion, and let it cook in olive oil. When it is almost done, add 4-5 cloves of sliced garlic, let them get nice and golden then splash some brandy into the pan, and let it cook out. Add 3 cans diced tomatoes (I’ve always used cans, but I think it would be really good with fresh!), season with thyme and salt and let it thicken.
Meanwhile, slice a bunch of kalamata olives and start your pasta boiling. My mom made homemade pasta, which was absolutely delicious! When the pasta is almost done, throw in the olives and add heavy cream (I used 1 cup for this amount of tomatoes, onions, leaks) and let the flavor sink in for a bit on low heat. Strain your pasta, and combine! Yum!
