This is chock full of yummy ingredients! It is actually very easy to put together. Great served with a salad and bread. I have also served as an appetizer, cutting into smaller wedges.
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄4 cup chopped green sweet pepper
- 1⁄4 cup sliced green onion
- 1⁄4 cup chopped celery
- 4 1⁄2 ounces sliced mushrooms, drained
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
- 8 ounces lump crabmeat
- 8 ounces shrimp, cooked and peeled
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz.)
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese

- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- bottled hot pepper sauce, to taste
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained (optional)
- 1 (9 inch) deep dish pie shells, partially baked (I let bake about 10-15 minutes while I'm preparing the filling)
