Easy Shepherd's Pie

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pines506

Got this off of Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals. It pretty much follows her recipe. Quick and Excellent! The more gravy you make, the thinner your pie will be -- but we liked a lot extra gravy for the potatoes!

AWESOME! My boyfriend is likely the pickiest eater on the planet (he hates tomatoes and most ground beef recipes are tomato based) but he requested I make it again. He doesn't like onions but I managed to sneak some minced dehydrated in without him noticing and it added a bit of a kick. I had trouble with the gravy but I always do (lumps, lumps. lumps). I used frozen peas, carrots, and corn and cooked them first. Took quite a bit longer than 30 minutes but I'm a novice so that's probably why.
