This was really good. Instead of the mashed potatoes listed in the recipe, I topped the pie with leftover Colcannon (Colcannon) (mashed potatoes & cabbage), which I think made it even better. The kids asked for it again - and even my husband, who usually thinks "comfort food" means "bland", thought this tasted great. The worcestershire sauce was a great addition to the flavor.

This recipe was okay. The first time I've made or had shepherd's pie. I wasn't too impressed - kinda bland and boring. I think I'll try a different recipe next time. And this one would be easier just to use packaged gravy and instant potatoes and frozen veggies. If I did that, it might be worth it. But for all that work I just wasn't too impressed. Thanks anyway, Rachel Ray!

Not too terribly impressed with this one. It was okay, but I found it to be a bit bland. And although not very complicated to put together it was a bit time consuming between chopping the veggies and then tending to 3 pans cooking simultaneously on the stove. It was okay but just not something I think I will make again. Oh, and one more thing, I think some cheese would really help this dish out!

Wow, what an easy recipe! I was out of carrots so I added parsnips (peeled & sliced). Also added a drained can of corn for color. It was such a fast, simple meal to put together, and tasted so good that my kids didn't even complain about the veggies. A keeper!

OMG thanks so much for the quick and easy recipe. I made this last night for my sister's family and everyone loved it. I did use the vegetable broth in place of the cream, but other than that made as directed. Thanks so much

This is a 5 for quick and easy! A definite stick to your ribs meal that my meat-N-potatoes DH2B loves! I used half ground beef and half cut up steak. This recipe was a life saver as the other meal I had planned had some problems and I needed something quick and yummy! thanks so much for posting!

This was a very good pie. I used the cream cheese option in the potatoes but next time to cut down on calories I will probably leave it out. I used a total of 2lb. of gr. beef and added a beef boullion cube to the mixture and left out the added salt. I also added a second boullion cube to the gravy for flavour. This was a very good recipe and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
