Ingredients
8 ounces farfalle (bowtie) pasta
2 medium size leeks, thinly sliced
1/2 ounce fresh basil, stalks removed (optional)
1/2 cup light cream
Sea salt and organic coarse ground black pepper
2 cups fresh green beans, trimmed
Kernels from 1 large ear of fresh corn
Preparation
1.  Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil, add the pasta, and cook according to instructions on package.
2.  While the pasta is cooking, place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over gentle heat and sauté the leeks for 10 minutes or until tender.
3.  Cover the bottom of a heavy saucepan with 1/4 inch of oil and place the pan over medium heat. When hot (but not smoking), fry the basil leaves for 5 seconds. Remove the leaves and drain on absorbent paper.
4.  Drain the pasta and add to the large frying pan of leeks, then stir in the salmon and cream. Season with black pepper and salt to taste.
5.  Return the frying pan to the heat and reheat gently for 2 to 3 minutes.
6.  Pour into a serving dish and sprinkle basil leaves over the top. Serve immediately.
