Dinner just doesn't get any easier than this comforting vegetable pie—it even makes its own crust! To make it even quicker, substitute a 10-ounce package of frozen chopped broccoli or cauliflower for the fresh; it doesn't need to be boiled. Just thaw, drain and add it to the pie.

This recipe is by Betty Crocker and was originally published in the Hartford Courant.
