Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Having received more strawberries and rhubarb than I could eat, I remembered seeing a recipe for a pie that was highly recommended by Catherine, KWT CSA member, via the Google group. Following her advice, I shortened the prep time by using a store bought crust. In addition, I threw in a few raspberries. Absolutely delicious.

To see the complete recipe, follow the URL; the recipe below eliminates the instructions for the crust.
