Author's Notes

Yields 7 servings.

When prepping the leeks, be sure to wash them very well. Dirt tends to get trapped between the leaves and you don’t want a gritty sauce!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large pot with water, add Salt (to taste) and bring it to a boil.
Step 2
Cut the green tops off the Leeks (3) and slice and cut in half lengthwise. Thoroughly wash the leeks under running water. Thinly slice the leeks and wash them again. Drain well.
Step 3
Heat Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced leeks and season with salt. Sauté for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Step 4
While the leeks are cooking, add the Penne Pasta (1 box) to the water and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the pasta water before draining.
Step 5
Once the leeks are cooked, add them to a blender along with Marinara Sauce (1 jar) . Add 1/2 cup of pasta water to thin the sauce out a bit and blend until smooth. Add more water if necessary.
Step 6
Add the blended pasta sauce to a skillet over medium heat along with the cooked, drained pasta and stir until well combined.
Step 7
Add pasta water if necessary to thin the sauce out. Mix for 2 minutes.
Step 8
Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese (to taste) , Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste) , and Fresh Basil (to taste) .
