    davianng's Note:

    This is the #1 all-time most requested meal that my two boys grew up on. Now Adam is 27 and Alex has passed away, so I'm posting this in Alex's memory. So easy, and you won't be dissapointed! Also very good cold the next day. I got in the habit of making 2 pies so there WOULD be leftovers! I got this recipe from a small cookbook I picked up at a truckstop while driving across country called "Cooking For The King of the Road"

      This dish is amazing! I used zucchini in place of the green beans and just plain forgot about the bell pepper. I also had no garlic salt so I used two heaping tbsp. of chopped garlic and some seasoned salt and it was still awesome. DH also suggested that some chopped tomato might be nice and I agree. I think this dish would have to be somewhere in the top 10 of my all time favorite Zaar recipes. Needless to say this is something I will be making often and I imagine my kids will be asking for the recipe in 20 years :) Thank you so much for posting such a winner!

      This is so yummy. It was my first time trying crescent dough as a pie crust. Very yummy. I used 1 medium onion and red bell pepper (near 1 cup). I didn't have green beans, so I used 1 zucchini, diced. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. For the cheese I used mozzarella. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. Made for PRMR tag game

      Very, very nice, & definitely worth making again, for sure! I did use garlic powder instead of garlic salt & also substituted freshly steamed green beans for the canned version! Oh, & I sprinkled the meat with a bit of lemon pepper, but other than that the recipe was followed right on down! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
