If you are looking to try something different -- here's your chance. This is very filling -- and left overs are GREAT. Although the recipe lists several things to top the "pie" with -- be creative and add whatever sounds good to you.

I took the advice of some of you and omitted the soup because we don't care for the smokey taste of it and our dinner came out delicious. I also forgot to add the garlic but it was wonderful!

Very filling and yummy. We got about 9 servings out of it. I made a few changes, using Smart Ground instead of beef, lowfat cheese, only half the can of soup (next time I'd leave it out -- didn't like the flavor), and only 3 T of cornstarch. It was really tasty, but the bottom pastry got a bit soggy. I think it would be good with just a top crust or -- even better -- a cornmeal top crust.

The filling is very good. Great to eat on a cold night.
