400 grams bacon, cut into squares
1 tablespoon butter

450 grams elbow macaroni,
      cooked according to package directions
ground pepper
3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a pan, sauté bacon until brown. Discard fat. Set bacon aside.

In another pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add leeks and stir-fry until transparent and have caramelized. Set aside.

Melt 1/2 cup butter in the same pan. Add cheese spread and cream. Mix well until the cheese spread has melted.

Add the cooked pasta, bacon and half of the caramelized leeks. Mix well until the sauce coats the pasta. Season with pepper.

Transfer to a rectangular baking dish. Top with the rest of the caramelized leeks, grated cheddar cheese, and breadcrumbs. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese melts.
