This was very good! I used the corn, but instead of asparagus, I used a peas and carrots combo. Also, I forgot the red pepper, but I think next time I'll be sure to use it. I also left out the curry (DH can't stand it). I layered it in a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish and it turned out great. DH thought that it tasted a little like Thanksgiving. It really is surprising how tasty these few leftover ingredients can be. Thanks Rita for this new favorite for my Left-Overs cookbook!

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013 and I am so glad I picked this. This is great anytime and after Thanksgiving you can use leftover turkey (even if I know it says chicken). Anyway I used rotisserie chicken and I added onion and some garlic (always do) and fresh green beans for the asparagus (didn't have any). What is so nice you can use any vegetables that you have. I never used curry in my Shepards pie but I love that extra flavor. Definately going into my Favorites of 2013. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

This was a great recipe! We left out the curry and I didn't have any red pepper or asparagus on hand, so I added green pepper instead. We'll definitely be making this one again.

We really enjoyed this casserole. I had some rotisserie chicken left over and used the corn and peas - didn't have asparagus. I substituted my leftover Colcannon (mashed potatoes and cabbage) on top and it was really good. Love the curry powder mixed with the soup. This is such a great recipe to use up leftover veggies and chicken - will definitely make this again! Made for ZWT -8- Great Britain/Ireland.

Had 1/2 rotisserie chicken and hoped to find something interesting. Sauteed an onion, sliced carrots, and some left-over mushrooms -- added to the veggies (no corn). Put together in a layer cake pan, and had 2 tasty meals. Real comfort food - just needs a little "oomph" next time. Thanks for posting, Rita~ .

This is really comforting comfort food. I was feeling a little under the weather when making this, but eating it perked me right up! I used gravy instead of canned soup, and added some mushrooms. Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I used leftover mashed potatoes that had been frozen, and they were so watery. But they baked up great! I used my own combination of veggies, homemade cream soup, and only 1/2 Tbsp. curry powder. Next time I'll use nicer chicken; I had some leftover diced cooked chicken that was very dry and plain. I did sprinkle Mrs. Dash original seasoning over it to add flavor to the pie and that was good. But it was still obvious that it was very dry chicken! Anyway, thanks for a useful recipe!

We really enjoyed this nice easy recipe. I didn't bother with the cheese. I felt there was enough flavour with the curry powder. I will be making this again. Thanks

I made this for a fuss-free St. Patty's dinner. I used a rotisserie chicken, homemade mashed potatoes, freshly steamed asaparagus, and omitted the curry. I assembled early in day and reheated in a 325 oven for about 45 minutes (covered with foil for the first half). This chicken version (shep. pie) was enjoyed by all! UPDATE: I chose this again for another St. Patrick's Day dinner, but made it fresh, using pesto from Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwiches on grilled chicken and fresh mashed potatoes (with sour cream). I broiled till the top was golden and served. This was delicious and I could tell my two teens liked it, along with my DH. Thanks again Rita, for another year of Shepherd' s Pie! Roxygirl Roxygirl
