Yield: 1 servings
|2¼ cup||Chicken broth; defatted|
|½ cup||Chopped celery|
|¼ cup||Chopped onions|
|1¾ cup||Evaporated skim milk|

How To Prepare Pie:
Combine in a medium sauce pan 2 cups of broth, celery, onions and carrots.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
Stir together in a custard cup the remaining ¼ cup of broth and the cornstarch. Slowly stir the cornstarch mixture into the broth/vegetable mixture.
Stir in the milk. Cook the mixture until it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook and stir for another minute. Stir in the turkey, peas, parsley and sage. Transfer the mixture to a shallow 2-quart casserole.
How To Prepare the Pastry Crust: Lay one sheet of the phyllo dough on top of the turkey mixture. Spray the dough with no-stick spray and repeat the layering and spraying two more times.
Fold or crumple the edges of the dough and tuck them inside the casserole dish.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
