Farmer’s Market Sausage Pie

Our 4-year-old son, Lukas, named this savory pie for the Saturday morning farmer's market that's held near our state capitol. Most of the fresh ingredients called for in the recipe can be found there and baked into this deliciously different entree. —Teri Schuman, Oregon, Wisconsin

    We've been making this recipe for years. It's delicious! I use Italian salad dressing (liquid) instead of the dry mix. Be sure to use the fennel-- it adds to the flavor! Awesome recipe. Thank you for sharing it.

    I have made this pot pie 3 times in the last month since I found the recipe! So good and satisfying and not difficult to make! I used bulk sausage pulled into pieces because that is what had the first time, and worked out great!

    This was absolutely yummy! My husband and I loved it. Uses up what's in the garden and yet I know I will make it this winter.

    I added more Vegis and used a bigger pan. This was great. I also used sweet Italian turkey sausage.

    I added a portion of sliced onion and usedsweet italian turkey sausage. Also used 1-2 tbsp more while I sauted the veggies. I had too much so I made 2 pies, split the cheese mixture between the 2 and topped with Italian Bread Crumbs. Excellent recipe!
