Brush 13"x9" glass baking dish with margarine.

Steam 1/2 the potatoes and pears until tender, about 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining potatoes and pears. Add 6 tablespoons margarine and mash. Season with salt and pepper.

Melt 2 tablespoon margarine in large skillet. Add leeks, sauté until crisp tender, about 15 minutes. Mix 1/2 the leeks in to potato mixture. Transfer to prepared dish. Top with remaining leeks. Can be made ahead.

Poster's Notes:
This made a nice presentation but I think I will mix all the ingredients together then brown in the oven.
