Blend all materials for the pastry to get a manageable dough. Chill pastry for at least 1 hour. Butter a large round ovenproof dish. Roll out 2/3 of pastry and line the dish with it. Roll the rest of the pastry to make a large lid for the pie. Put on a greased baking tray. Bake both parts for 10 minutes in a moderate oven: 180C/350F. Take out of the oven, and allow to cool. Prepare the filling. If the filling includes pasta - the pasta should be only half cooked (boiled for half the time specified for the pasta. Fill the dough dish, cover with the lid, seal dough, and cook in the moderate heat oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
