Leek and Ham Pasta

This so quick and easy to make and the milky, cheese sauce means its full of calcium, needed for growing bones! It can be made and put in the freezer too.

INGREDIENTS – 90gms of Pasta, 2 large leeks, 3 slices of ham (of the bone preferably), 150ml of Whole Milk, A handful of grated red leicester cheese, 1 teaspoon of cornflour.

DIRECTIONS –  Cook the pasta in a saucepan, while it is cooking, peel and slice the leeks into 5mm width pieces. Put them into a bowl with a tablespoon of water and microwave until soft. Chop the ham slices into small pieces. In another saucepan, put the milk and the grated cheese and turn the heat on low. Put a teaspoon of cornflour into a cup and a little cold water. Mix until dissolved  and pour in with the cheese and milk.  Turn up the heat and continue to stir until boiling and thickened. Take the sauce off the heat and when the pasta is done to your liking, pour the sauce over it, add the leeks and the chopped ham and mix.  This will give you enough for you and your toddler. You may want to cut your toddlers portion up into smaller bits.
