I have a new vegetarian in the family and am looking for new and tasty vegetarian dishes. This was delicious! I think I liked it better than my regular chicken pot pie recipe. It was tasty and the sauce was so creamy. Ok, so it was a bit of work and I did have to wash a bunch of pans/pots afterwards but my whole family loved this dish. I didn't bother making my own crust. I used a Pillsbury pie crust and it worked just fine (and saved a few steps too!). I ended up making a bunch of small potpies in individual foil pans so that I could freeze a few for later but we ended up eating them all! I will definitely make this again but will make double the recipe so that I can freeze enough for a second meal.
