    Cooks4_6's Note:

    This recipe is so easy, yet so delicious. You can change up the type of meat (I have used a combo of beef, chicken and/or sausage) and use whatever veges you choose. It always comes out a winner! Whenever I bring it to a carry-in, I am inevitably asked for the recipe! I highly recommend you use Certified Angus Beef when preparing this dish ... you will taste the difference!

      I've never had Shepherd's Pie before but DH has been asking for it. Mine took on a 'south of the border' flair since I added a poblano pepper, corn and topped with instant southwest mashed potatoes. Very tasty, thanks for sharing!

      I don't really like Shepherd's Pie we do in Quebec (beef, corn and mashed potatoes). But this version is so good. I love it and I'll do it again. I love all the veggies in it. I added green bell pepper. I love the sauce with the beef base (I used no-sodium). I heated the sauce in the microwave. I cooked the carrots in the microwave also. When the cheese was a little bit melted, I decided to put the oven at Broil to broil the cheese. Yummy! Thanks Cooks4_6 for a yummy meal :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
