    "Very easy and terrific taste. Here's the nice part. You can easily leave out the ham and sausage and make this a vegan meal (I have two vegan daughters) and it still is amazing. Great flavor. Cooking the leeks and onions until they start turning brown is key to the taste. Will definitely make again. Big hit with my daughters. "
