Thanks Snoopy--that looks like a great quick (and lower calorie) pot pie recipe.

Low calorie !!

Mix beef or chicken, veggies and gravy together and spread into bottom of non greased 9-inch round glass pie pan.

I assume you're looking to reduce the calories, fat, sodium, etc.. I looked at all 28 of the SparkRecipes for beef pot pie and they were all pretty "costly."

My suggestions would be to use turnips, rutabagas or parsnips instead of potatoes, add lots of celery and other "lite" vegetables (kale, spinach, mushrooms, fennel) to the carrots and peas and just put a crust on the top (as opposed to a double crust). emoticon

I love pot pie, too!

If someone can come up with a way to lower the nutritional stats, I would really appreciate it. I'm doing a home made pie crust. This is the first time I have ever used the sparkpeople recipe area and I guess I'm not user friendly yet. Thank you
