I love pot pie, so when I saw this recipe I decided I had to try it. I made everything as it is listed, except I used Neufchatel cheese and when it came time to add the seasoning packet I realized that I only had Ranch and not Italian, so I just went with the Ranch. It was really easy to make. My family actually ate it. My husband couldn't stop saying how good it was. My sons, who are very picky eaters and normally won't eat anything with vegetables in it, didn't complain about the veggies and seemed to liked it. I am excited to try it again with the Italian seasoning and see what the difference is in the taste.

I would rate this a 3 1/2 stars (is that allowed?). I would definitely take it as a meal to someone and might take it to a potluck depending on the group. We will for sure be making this again.
