  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Grease a rectangular baking dish approximately 20cm x 25cm x 6cm. Place a layer of sliced potatoes in the bottom of the dish, season and top with the sliced leeks. Sprinkle over the nutmeg and dot with half the butter. Layer the pea shoots and leeks then top with the sliced potatoes, so they are slightly overlapping. Dot with the remaining butter and season. Cover with foil and place in the preheated oven.
  3. Cook for 45 minutes and remove the foil, sprinkle over the grated cheese and return to the oven uncovered for a further 45 minutes to 1 hour until the potatoes are golden brown and cooked through.
