      Talk about easy and delicious! This made a great "comfort food" meal with very little effort or mess. This was just enough for myself and two hungry men. I will double it if have more at my table. The finished product looks beautiful too. This would make great lunch box leftovers I think. I gave it 4 stars (which is still good in my book) because there is a little confusion in the directions. Down where it says to Brush with beaten milk, I assumed it meant egg since the ingredients call for a beaten egg but does not mention where to use it. I had to do an internet search to make the temperature conversions (not a problem - Dee-licious! is down under - I'm in Alaska) For any other Westerners wanting to make this yummy dish, 200 degrees = 400 farenheit or Gas mark 6 for Euro. 180 degrees = 350 farenheith or Gas mark 4.

      This was FANTASTIC! by far the best pie I have ever had. Quick and easy, took the leftovers to work and they reheated beautifully. Made 4 large servings, and we didnt even need sauce! Thanks for posting
