READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a fantastic version of Shepard's Pie. The flavor is rich and savory. Perfect for a Fall or Winter evening. I adapted it from a recipe I found in Taste of Home magazine. The original is credited to Helen McGeorge.

I've been wanting to make dishes using tarragon. This one really has true tarragon flavor.
