      I made this as a side tonight with turkey meatballs, and ended up simmering the meatballs in the creamed leeks before serving over angel hair with roasted garlic brussel sprouts ... so, so good. Thanks for sharing!

      So simple and sooo delicious! Made on a whim to go with grilled salmon, only because leeks looked good at the store. The measurements are VERY forgiving, I'd say. I used 2 leeks instead of 4 and totally estimated the rest of the ingredients - just pouring cream in, grinding salt and pepper, sitting outside with wine while it cooked, etc. As I came in to taste test, it just got better and better. I just posted the recipe on FB! It's simply wonderful!
