    This was good. I used turkey and eliminated the sage. Would make it again. Thanks for the recipe.

    Every good. I just put it all in a baking pan and put pastry over that.

    This recipe is a hit with my husband because it doesn't have much crust. He's not a fan of the soggy pastry or pasty bread toppings of most pot pies. He can also make these individual pies himself -- getting him to cook is always a good thing for me!
