Leeks are related to both garlic and onions but have a milder, subtler flavour and require a longer cooking time. You can replace the leeks with 3 cups (750 mL) of chopped spinach.

Saute the carrot, celery, onion, and garlic for about 2 minutes. Add the prosciutto. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the parsley and Parmesan cheese. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat. Simmer the sauce for 10-12 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by half. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Add the sauce and toss to coat.
