When the hubby's out of town I like to make something quick and easy that I know my 5 and 7 yr olds will eat with minimal complaints. This was a hit! I'm not a huge fan of peas myself, but they really work in this dish. Surprisingly, I actually had leeks on hand, so I pretty much followed the recipe except that I used Barilla PLUS elbows and I added garlic salt instead of regular salt and pepper (per another reviewer). Yea! Quick and easy, this will definitely go in our rotation!

Loved this recipe.... The kids enjoyed it too.

Very good. We both enjoyed it. I caramelized the leeks just to add more flavor. There are only two of us, and because we love vegetables, I kept all the ingredients the same except halved the pasta. It was just right for us. I'll definitely be making this one again!
