Sorry to be the party pooper but my husband and I felt this was bland. I was disappointed at the flavor because it was so easy to put together! The texture was mostly good and it looked fantastic coming out of the oven. But it needed more flavor. The leek soup mix had a dried-up, almost gritty flavor to it, perhaps it didn't get blended fully. I think this could be good if you could make your own white sauce with leeks or green onions and maybe some garlic. Or perhaps mixing the cheese in with the sauce instead of putting it all on top.
