I like pie. And now thanks to pie Tuesday I like Tuesdays, win! Oh and just a heads up your definition of pie may be different to mine, as long as it says pie in the recipie title I’m sold, also if I think it resembles pie, like hot-pot does. Anyho, I love this pie so much. And the way I make it works out at 589 calories (I reduce the potatoes and meat down to 3 peoples worth but keep everything else the same because mmmmm veg), but I suspect if you make it properly it’ll be even less! But whatever way you make it this pie tastes soooo good you’ll soon be wandering how you ever lived your life without it!

Stuff your face with the ridiculously generous portion this gives and then drift off into a pie induced food coma!Also I apologise for being the world's worst blogger and forgetting to take photos. Especially as I only remembered after this fail of an attempt at dishing-up!
If anyone else has healthy pie recipes they think deserve a spot on pie Tuesday let me know. There is no such thing as too much pie!
