My prep time was a little longer since I had no left over turkey so I cooked some chicken breasts while the carrots simmered. The mixture (which tasted delicious) thickened but was not thick enough. I assumed it would thicken more in the oven but instead it got soupier. Next time I'll add a little more flour and make sure it is good and thick before turning into the casserole dish. The crust was fantastic, Nice & flakey on top and oh, such good flavor. Made for Fall 2008 PAC-O
