"Excellent recipe"

"Great tasting potpie! I used a store-bought refrigerated pie crust (saved on time). Simple to put together, basic ingredients used, and tasty. The filling is thick enought that it doesn't turn out 'soupy' and thin. Will be keeping this recipe handy for next time."

"Very good - the only changes i made were to use only frozen carrots (that is what my family prefers) and to use a store bought Pillsbury crust. This one is definitely a keeper!"
