Bacon, Leek, Cheese Phyllo Tarts; cherry tomato sauce — 6 Comments

  1. Ma femme absolutely loves cherry tomatoes and is ~meh~ about the others. In the never-ending interest of maximizing marriage potential, I’ll be planting those shortly.

    Now I absolutely love leeks. I think this dish helps make a marriage in heaven.

    • My neighbor is the same – only plants the cherries…. I’m happy with both but for me, the bigger the better!
      I need to plant leeks. I use so many this time of year.

  2. I don’t plant them anymore. I planted two plants many years and a couple houses ago when I had a small, raised bed. The second year, when I didn’t plant them because I had run out of ideas for the thousands I’d gotten on the two plants the year before, I had volunteer plants everywhere! In the grass, in the bushes, in the garden, in the front yard…

    I do like to saute a pound of them though, in olive oil and garlic, just until they burst. Then I splash in a little of the pasta water from the pappardelle or ziti and use it as a simple sauce. It’s wonderful and light. 🙂

    • I do like them…. and they have their place…. But they get out of control quickly. I usually end up pulling the plants out early in frustration lol
      Thanks for the recipe!
