DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Steam leeks until just tender over the boiling pasta.
  • Put shells in a buttered casserole dish. Top with the leeks and season lightly with salt & pepper. Sprinkle the chopped parsley and thyme over the top.
  • Put milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add cheeses and stir to melt. If sauce seems a bit thin, you can thicken it by adding the 2tsp cornstarch to 2 Tbsp water and adding this mixture to the milk & cheese mixture and cook until thickened.
  • Pour the sauce over the leeks and top with the breadcrumbs. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
