Spinach and Leek Tart

Recipe by katew

Adapted from a recipe torn from an Australian Womens Weekly - I made one large tart but you could make individual ones if you wished.You could also use a pre made pastry shell.

Kate, this was a wonderful tasty recipe. I did however add 1/2 cup crumbled feta and 2 cloves crushed garlic. We will be enjoying this again. Thank you Kate. Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap #24, Jan'o8.
