Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients for 6 people

8 leeks

1/2 lb of macaroni

1 1/4 cups of bechamel sauce

1 cup of ham, diced

1 cup of swiss cheese, grated

salt & pepper


Freezer bag

Casserole dish

Step 1/4

Remove the roots and the green from the leeks and cut them into 4 equal sections. Cook the pieces for 10 minutes in salted water. Drain well, then remove the core from each section to form tubes. Chop the cores.

Step 2/4

Cook the macaroni in boiling salted water, drain and add the chopped leek cores, bechamel sauce, ham, swiss cheese, salt, and pepper.

Step 3/4

Mix well and place the mixture in the freezer bag. Cut off 1 of the corners of the bag and use it as a piping bag to stuff the leek tubes with the mixture. Spread the rest of the mixture on the bottom of the casserole dish.

Step 4/4

Form rows of leek tubes on top of each other by placing 2 paler tubes vertically, 2 greener ones horizontally against the first ones and so on until the casserole is covered. Bake for 20 min at 350 °F and serve.
