  • 625 ml (2 1/2 cups) milk
  • To taste salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 leek, washed and sliced thinly
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter

  2. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  3. In a skillet, sweat the leek in the butter without browning and add to the bowl with the parsnips. Add the caraway seed and mustard, toss gently and transfer the mixture to a gratin dish.
  4. Pour the cream over the vegetables, then sprinkle with the Mozzarellissima and Parmesan cheeses.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
