An easy starter or light lunch - tender baby leeks wrapped in smoky pancetta then baked in a rich cheese sauce with a breadcrumb topping.
Serves: 6 as a starter
You can use Parma ham or other cured ham instead of pancetta. Always use day-old bread, crusts removed, for breadcrumbs, as it gives a crunchy result. Whizz the bread in a food processor or grate coarsely. Freeze in a freezer bag for up to 1 month
