      This just might be the best recipe I've found yet on Zaar...and believe me, I am trying new ones constantly. Simple goodness. We didn't use the balsamic but squeezed fresh lemon juice over the veggies instead. The mellow flavor of the leeks really complimented the asparagus and although I have always liked roasted asparagus, I will probably never serve it again without leeks. This was over the top good! LOVED IT! And it's even healthy! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe.

      Very good! I never have much luck getting all of the grit and sand out of leeks, though. :( I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
