Vegetarian Albanian Leek Casserole (Tave Me Presh)

"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."

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

    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 Recipe #362056 and Recipe #499776. What a great dinner we all had.

<p>I&nbsp;live in Seattle, but have also lived in the DC area, the Mid-west, California,&nbsp;the South, and New England,&nbsp;as&nbsp;well as China and India plus travel a fair bit, so I have experienced a good number of cuisines and like them all. I&nbsp;eat mostly vegetarian and mostly do a lot of scratch cooking. I am known for my creative use of leftovers and whatever is in the fridge. Too bad those recipes can't go easily into Zaar.</p>
