Bubbly warm goodness under a crispy crust. Another one dish wonder from Ina. House Beautiful Magazine, September 2009 edition. I have tasted Ina Garten's Lobster Potpie and it was awesome - so how can you improve on something so delicious but she has!!! "One of my philosphies of cooking is to take a recipe you are totally comfortable making, and then have three variations of it up your sleeve." She also says that "she loves all kinds of potpies -- chicken, lobster, vegetable, plus the one with seafood. 1 process = 4 recipes and you have a whole dinner in one dish that goes from the oven to the table. How easy is that?" I really love the way this lady thinks, creates recipes, cooks with ease and has awesome & lovely dinner parties. :) Rated 5 stars out of 525 reviews. Believe it or not - this recipe has been reworked since I tasted it the first time from her 1999 The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. This can be served to anyone - it can become a family meal or one for guests! Oops - almost forgot the pastry dough has a 30 minute chilling time - sorry ;) I know - it is once in a lifetime experience!
