re the pasta w/ leeks recipe you posted-- I didn't want this posting to get lost in the shuffle. Good god was that a delicious pasta dish!! Thank you so much for posting it. You didn't mention it in your description but I found it necessary to cover the pan, which steamed and softened the leeks simultaneously while helping to infuse the garlic butter flavor. Was this step in the original recipe? Also, on my gas range the leeks were totally soft and started to burn at 30 minutes, not 45... good thing I checked on it because if I had let it go for a few more minutes, the "heavy" carmelization on the leeks would have turned to overcarmelization :-)

Thanks again for a fantastic recipe
