      I looked forward to making this recipe for weeks in advance, but I was dissapointed :( First, 5 leeks was A LOT of leeks, so I used three large instead. I used approximately 15 fresh chestnuts, and I served all atop of linguine. The taste wasn't terrible, it just wasn't as delectable as I had anticipated.
