This recipe comes from the wonderful Donna Hay, from her meals in 10mins. Hint to keep it to minutes "The second you walk in the door pop a large pot of water on the stove. By the time it boils you'll be set to throw in the pasta, start on the sauce and eat 10 minutes later" Donna Hay. Love her food, always fresh with a zesty flavor.
Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water for 5-8 minutes or until al dente. Drain and keep warm.
While the pasta is cooking, cook the bacon under a hot broiler for 3-4 minutes or until crisp. Set aside and keep warm.
Heat a deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil, leek and garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until the leek is soft. Add the stock and cabbage. Cook, covered, for 4-5 minutes or until the cabbage is wilted and tender.
To serve, toss the cabbage mixture, bacon, Parmesan and thyme through the pasta
