Easy Shepard's Pie

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Donnas Days

A quick meal that easily doubles or triples. Also freezes well. Experiment with different spices to your taste. Also works with ground turkey or lamb. Left over mashed potatoes make this dinner a snap.

Fast, easy, and good. This basic recipe can be customized the way you like it or with what you have on hand. I added sliced mushrooms, green pepper, a few green beans and a couple healthy splashes of Worcestershire sauce.
