  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 none cooking spray
  • 2 regular Pie crust, refrigerated, unbaked


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Peel and chop carrots and butternut squash if applicable (A 1.5 pound squash should suffice if buying whole); dice the onion. Place veggies on a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 30 minutes or until tender when poked with a fork but still firm in the middle.

  • Stir the vegetables into the sauce. Season to taste with remaining salt and pepper.
  • Spray pie plate with cooking spray and line with pie crust.  Fill with the vegetable mixture and cover with second pie crust.
  • Bake uncovered until dough is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
