These are a bit different from traditional pasties, but the ingredients are probably already on your pantry shelf. My husband really enjoys these, so I like to double the recipe and freeze the extras to have on hand as a quick meal.—Judy Marsden, Ontario, California
I remember Sunday dinners at my grandma's farm. Chicken potpie was probably second in popularity only to chicken and dumplings. I like to collect heritage recipes from my area and hope to compile them someday into a cookbook.
Says Dona Alsover of Upland, California, “Our children and grandchildren live far away, so my husband, Jim, and I frequently plan a quiet dinner by candlelight. We have Vegetable Ramekins often since we can pull fresh things from our garden all year. It is a colorful and delicious side dish.”
