On this rainy Monday, and with winter weather plaguing a lot of the country, we all need some good ole fashioned comfort food in our lives. Some would say there is nothing more comforting than a chicken pot pie, however I beg to differ. We’ve got Italian Pot Pies on the mind today, and the craving is out of control.
With ingredients that are staples in my house, I can bet that some of you could make these for dinner tonight without venturing out in this weather to get to the market. You’ve some ground beef, diced onion, shaved carrots, and marinara sauce for the filling. And butter, milk, flour, dried rosemary and baking powder for the crunchy tops.
With simple ingredients, and easy steps this is a great recipe to get your kids to be more active in the kitchen. Both Sammy and I grew up in households where learning to cook and helping in the kitchen was a must. It was always fun, educational, and eating your creation in the end was so satisfying. Even as an adult I feel that satisfaction, but it was certainly a bigger deal (like most things we’re) when I was young. It’s also just important to teach the younger generous the basic need of feeding themselves. It surprises me how many people from my generous that take the easy and expensive way out and just order in.
If your one of those people, no judgment here I promise. A lot of the problem is just the lack of time that the average person has to spend in the kitchen. A common problem that can be solved by tuning into food blogs likes ours (shameless plug I know), cookbooks/meal plans that focus on manageable and better than take-out recipes.
Having said that, these italian pot pies are a great place to start. It is both manageable and better than any take-out you can order. Give it shot, and let us know what you think.
