One of the most ubiquitous casseroles around, the pot pie has many incarnations, both good and bad—but when it’s good, it’s memorable. With tasty Creamed Turkey (or Creamed Chicken, if you prefer), loads of vegetables, and a no-fuss puff pastry crust, this one falls in the good category. We think you’ll agree.
What to buy: We used Dufour puff pastry with excellent results, but if you prefer a denser crust, try topping your pot pie with frozen store-bought flaky pie dough.

Beverage pairing: 2006 Heron Chardonnay, California. The basic blue-collar flavors in this recipe go well with a California Chardonnay, just one that’s not too oaky or heavy. This wine is neither, but rather balanced and lively with citrus and pear.
