Leek and Spinach Tart

I bought some leeks and spinach and wanted to make a tart. Could not find a recipe that I liked and ended up doing a stir fry of the leeks and spinach, thyme, salt and pepper. I made a pie crust using the recipe from The Silver Palate Cookbook. I put a layer of Mascapone cheese on the bottom of the crust and topped that with the leeks and spinach. Folded the crust over to make it more of a rustic tart and baked it 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
Somebody went back for seconds! I went for seconds also but it was the crust was after. I had some nice photos of the tart but I have to question the cats as to where the cord for the camera may be hiding...

That sounds like a great idea for a tart. I've never thought of using mascarpone as a base. Yum.
