Recipe of the Week

This is an easy recipe from Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.

Braised Leeks with Parmesan Cheese

4 large or 6 medium leeks

3 Tb butter

Salt

3 Tb freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Pull off any ellow or withered leaves from the leeks. Trim away the roots.  Do not cut off the green tops.  Cut each leek lengthwise in two.  Wash the leek thoroughly under cold running water spreading the tops with your hands to make sure any hidden bits of soil are washed away.

Put the leeks in a pan just broad or long enough so that they can lie flat and straight.  Add the butter, salt and enough water to cover, put a lid on the pan, and turn the heat to medium low.  Cook until the thickest part of the leeks feels tender when prodded with a fork, about 15 minutes for 1” diameter leeks.  Turn them from time to time while they cook.

When done, uncover the pan, turn the heat up to high, and boil away all the watery juices in the pan.  In the process the leeks should become lightly  browned.  Before removing them from heat, add the grated Parmesan, turn the leeks over once or twice, then transfer to a warm  platter and serve at once.
