 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Butter
    6       md           Leeks (white & 2 of green)
                         -- sliced into 1/4 rounds
                         -- and rinsed well
                         -- to remove grit
    2       tb           Balsamic vinegar
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Freshly ground pepper
      1/2   c            Heavy cream
    7       oz           Goat cheese -- crumbled
    1                    Pre-baked 10 tart shell
 
   In a lidded frying pan, saute the leeks in the butter
   until wilted. Add vinegar, salt and pepper; cover and
   cook on low heat until leeks are tender (about 30
   minutes).  Remove lid and increase heat to moderately
   high; add cream and cook, stirring, until cream is
   absorbed (about 1 minute). Remove pan from heat and
   cool slightly.
   
   Spread the goat cheese evenly over the bottom of the
   tart shell. Spoon the leek mixture evenly over the
   cheese.  Bake in a 350 degree F. oven until heated
   through and browned on top (about 15 minutes).
