Easy Beef Pot Pie

One day I had forgotten all about a benifit luncheon I had promised to make a dish for. The only thing I had on hand was a large can of Dinty Moore Beef Stew, a can of green beans and makings for a pie crust. So I decided to make a pot pie using what I had on hand. This recipe is the results of that casserole. It was a big hit. Everyone wanted to know how to make it. Hope you all enjoy it as we did.
