Turkey, Sage and Squash Pot Pie

This fast version of pot pie is a great way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey. It is quicker to make than a regular pot pie because the pastry bakes as the filling simmers. If time permits, you can put the filling in ovenproof dishes, cover with uncooked pastry and bake until bubbly and golden.

On parchment paper, unroll pastry; cut lengthwise then crosswise into 4 equal sections. Brush with egg. Transfer paper with pastry onto baking sheet; bake in 400?F (200?C) oven until puffed and golden, 16 to 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, in Dutch oven or large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, celery, squash, salt and pepper until squash is tender, 7 to 8 minutes.

Stir in flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in broth and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 8 minutes.
