"This is our family's take on a dish my husband saw on TV (I believe the original used pancetta and some hard-to-find ingredients). It's super tasty and quick. Always a big hit at my house and we rarely have leftovers."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Fry diced bacon in a large skillet until browned, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon into a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in skillet. Cook and stir leek and cremini mushrooms in the hot bacon drippings until mushrooms are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Return bacon to skillet and stir in bow-tie pasta. Gently mix in sour cream and season with black pepper and parsley. Top with Parmesan cheese to serve.
