With frozen puff pastry you can easily make a very professional looking pie. You can buy puff pastry in long rolls that you just have to unroll (the easiest to use) or in bricks you have to roll out. Mushrooms (about 1/4 lb) can be added to the filling by cooking them with the onions and celery. The pot pies can be frozen.
