    alvinakatz's Note:

    This is a vegetarian version of a traditional Albanian dish. It makes a tasty side and is delicious served with yogurt, which is commonly eaten in Albanian meals. You can use any mushrooms you want, but the stronger tasting ones are better. Spice to taste, I like more red pepper than the Albanians probably do. Adapted from 20 Albanian Recipes and submitted for My Food Odyssey.

      Wow, what a great recipe. I made as written, except that I took it out of the oven after 30 minutes. I feared that the leeks and mushrooms would completely melt down. The flavours are absolutely divine. Served with Turkey Steaks With Spinach, Pears, & Blue Cheese and Nora Ephron's Mashed Potatoes. What a great dinner we all had.

      I scaled the recipe way down and enjoyed for lunch. I used ketchup in place of the tomato sauce. Thanks!
