The pot pie is an all-inclusive meal. It has meat, vegetables, and a delicious pastry crust. Don't be intimidated by the fancy shmancy appearance. There's perfectly delicious ready made pie crust and flaky pastry sheets as near as your grocer's aisle. No need to cook up meat from scratch. Make pot pie when you have left-over chicken, beef, or turkey. Onions, carrots, corn and peas are the usual ingredients for a pot pie, and we're not knocking it. But you can try some exotic veggies like leeks, asparagus, roasted beets, or cauliflower. Feeling wild and crazy? Add a pear if you dare. Milk, broth, butter and a little flour make up the creamy white sauce. Throw it together any which way and it's guaranteed to be delish!
