Cook the bucatini
While the water heats and the bucatini cooks, prepare the eggs.
Cook the eggs
While the eggs cook, prepare the sauce.
Make the sauce; finish the pasta
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
- Trim the root ends from the leeks; cut the leeks in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Soak the leeks in a medium bowl of cold water, allowing any dirt to settle at the bottom. Skim the leeks from the surface of the water and pat dry.
- Zest and juice enough lemon to measure 1 tablespoon zest and 1 teaspoon juice.
- Remove any pulp from the preserved lemon; finely chop enough peel to measure 1 teaspoon.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
Stir in the bucatini, lemon juice, panko, and half the parsley; cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Finish the eggs
Chef's tip: For crisper bread crumbs toast the panko in a dry pan for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat.
