I made this last night and it tasted good. The sauce looked a bit strange -- very beige and a bit lumpy. Everyone seemed to enjoy it though and there were no leftovers even though there were only three of us dining. I was serving leeks as a side dish, so I substituted 1/2 a medium onion for the leek called for in this recipe so as not to overdo it.
