Pennsylvania Dutch Potpie

This hearty & heart healthy vegetarian recipe comes from Prevention’s The Healthy Cook. It’s every bit as tasty as a traditional pot pie, but without the traditional lard laden crust. (I don’t know about you, but I am JUST FINE with skipping the lard!) Egg noodles provide a hefty base for the spooned mixture of creamy chicken and veg. A perfect salt free meal for a cold spring day.

Serves 6.
