      This was a nice way to use leeks. The mushrooms, tomato paste, and broth added good flavour. Next time I think I would saute the mushrooms alone, then add the leeks with broth mixture for just a few minutes before uncovering and evaporating. To me, the leeks were overdone, but I tend to like my vegetables with some crispiness. So, I'm giving 5 stars because of the great flavour, and I will modify the cooking time to suit my own tastes next time. Thanks for a great recipe, Taryne!

      I reduced this to one third, which made a nice side dish of two servings, although I was a little heavy handed with the mushrooms. Easy and good.
