This recipe came from my Mother who was a stickler about "Waste Not, Want not", and it is now a family favorite around my house. I try not to make it too often because I would have half the town over for dinner!! When I tell my grandkids we're having pie for supper they squeal and ask what's for dessert Grandma? Peas?!! -))

I'll definitely be making this recipe again, my husband absolutely loves it. Personally I think it too needs "something" else in it, a vegetable of sorts, but my husband asked me not to ruin such a good thing by doing that. Can you tell he loves just mean and starches?
This is recipie answered my question. Do you use beef or chicken broth? I am making a pot pie from let over pot roast and vegetables.
