This pot pie is warm and hearty, and it has all the things that make you think of fall, like butternut squash, apples and cranberries. The sauce is infused with ginger root and sage, which just warms your heart when you take a bite. It is so thick and flavorful, you would swear there is butter in it, but there is no butter in this pie.
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Drop pearl onions into boiling water for 30 seconds; drain, peel.
Bring 1 cup broth to a boil in a large pot. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes, until soft, then add remaining cup of broth, carrots, squash and sage. Bring to a boil and cook for 8 minutes, until squash is tender.
Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and 1 cup skim milk and stir until smooth. To cornstarch-milk mixture, add apple chunks, cranberries, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and ginger root; cook for about 2 minutes.
Add milk mixture to broth mixture, stir in chicken, and cook for about 5 minutes, or till it begins to thicken. Pour into a 9″ deep-dish pie plate. To make the topping, combine Bisquick, lemon zest, ground ginger and skim milk in a bowl. Using hands, lay topping over filling surface (flour your hands, it’s sticky) and tap it down. Bake for 15 minutes or until top is golden.
Servings: 8 slices (a hungry man may want 2 servings—mine did).

I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
