Prepare Pie Pastry.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet.

Cook and stir over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Increase heat and add wine.
When wine is reduced by half, cover skillet and reduce heat.
Cook 10 minutes.
Press tomatoes through a food mill or sieve, to remove seeds.
Wash and dry mushrooms thoroughly and cut into wedges.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet.
Add mushrooms.
Saute over high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until golden.
Reduce heat.
Add parsley, pork mixture and tomato pulp.
Season with salt and pepper.
Simmer 5 to 10 minutes.
Bring milk to a boil in a very large saucepan.
Add 2 tablespoons salt and macaroni.
Bring milk back to a boil and cook macaroni uncovered until quite firm to the bite, 5 to 6 minutes.
Drain macaroni, reserving milk, and place in skillet with pork mixture.
Toss gently until mixed; set aside.
Prepare Basic White Sauce using milk in which macaroni was cooked.
Stir white sauce into macaroni mixture.
Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
Butter a 10-inch cake pan with a removable bottom.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger amount of pastry dough into a 14-inch circle.
Place dough carefully in buttered pan.
Pour macaroni mixture into pastry shell and level top with a spatula.
Roll out remaining pastry dough to a 10-1/2-inch circle and place on top of macaroni mixture.
Pinch edges of bottom and top dough together to seal.
Brush dough with beaten egg.
With a fork, puncture top crust of pie in 5 or 6 places.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden.
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes in pan.
Remove pie from pan and place on a large round platter.
