    Kim A. Heaphy's Note:

    Now this is a recipe I don't make too often because I eat way too much of it. It is the ultimate comfort food for me and one that I become a bottomless pit with. Though it is good as a side dish with pasta and sauce or with braised meats.

      We enjoyed this as a filling, comforting lunch dish. The cheese gives the dish a smooth and creamy taste, but the leeks are a the real star. Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
