Very tasty. No fennel, so I just used celery. I didn't have any puff pastry (and it's $$$) so made some biscuit dough. DH pointed out I could have used canned crescent roll dough. Duh, that would have been good.
This is a delicious dish! I had a little bit of fresh cauliflower and broccoli so added that in too and it was just terrific. I had a single pie crust that needed using so I took that option instead of the puff pastry option. Filling, comforting, delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe!
Sharon this is absolutely scrumptious! I had to skip the fennel because I just couldn't find it anywhere around here so I just used the celery. I made 2 individual casseroles and they looked so pretty with the puff pastry topping. There is so much great flavor and texture in this that I can't see how anyone would miss meat. If someone wanter to do a little fancy pastry work and make make flowers or vines on top this would not be at all out of place on your finest holiday table. I have a lot of pastry left and I'm looking forward to enjoying this again soon.
