I really liked this recipe. I used homemade garlic-sour cream mashed potatoes to top it and put a layer of shredded cheddar cheese underneath the potatoes. Awesome flavor!

My husband doesn't like my Shepherd's Pie (even though I love it) so I was hesistant to feed this to him, but he absolutely loved it. He added ketchup to it, but I thought this was a perfect dish as is. A good basic meal.

This recipe was great!! My husband and I couldn't get enough of it. The only thing I did different was to use fresh parsley and thyme and to use 1/4 - 1/2 t. poultry seasoning in place of the sage. Thanks for sharing..this is a keeper!

This was great! I made it for lunch today and the kids loved it! I used a large can of diced tomatoes instead of the fresh ones and I also added a package of brown gravy mix when I added the broth. What a good recipe, thanks!

Great meal for the family. I added tomato paste as suggested to thicken it up and it came out wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Yum. A good blending of flavours. I will add more thyme and sage next time, as I love these flavours. I also added a heaped teasp of mustard, and some milk and butter to the potatoes as I mashed them. Thanks.

Loved it! This is a wonderful recipe, and will stay with our family from now on. Definately a keeper! The first time I made this recipe was for St. Patty's Day, and my husband loved it so much I didn't have enough! So I will have to double up on the ingredients from now on. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!
