Full of flavor!

Okay, here's the scoop...My husband and I loved the flavor of this dish. If it were only the two of us eating, I would rate it a 5. However, we have three children to consider. There are alot of vegetables hidden in the dish. I could not even convince my kids to eat it, which is a shame because it is tasty. I will make the dish again (for mature guests) except I think I will increase the sauce a bit more. I thought it should be just a little creamier than it was. The overall taste of this dish is "Chicken Pot Pie" comfort food.
