I really really like this, AND I adjust it in different ways. I don't always love tomato sauce, tho I do make it the way it is listed at times. Other times, I use the basic recipe but cut up a chicken breast to cook with the onion carrots herbs and I cook it in chicken broth. At the end, I thicken with a flour/broth thickening, put in a pie pan and cover with a pie crust. Other option is to do the recipe with ground beef as listed but to thicken the beef broth to a gravy ( using a flour thickening ) instead of tomato..and I love the mashed potatoes on top. So this recipe is a jumping off point for several versions. LOVE IT!!!
