We liked this. DH was a little so-so about the meat mixture but particularly liked the parsnip mash topping. I didn't mind the meat mixture but agreed with DH that it needed "something" extra as the falvour of the herbs was bearly noticable and it was a little bland. We both would have put garlic in it too as we are garlic fans. I used home made beef stock and lots of cheddar cheese on the top. For the rest I stuck to the recipe and yes, more veggies would be a nice addition to this too. Please see my rating system, a lovely 3 stars for a tasty weekday meal, but one that we would very much like to radically increase the herbs in next time. Thanks !

Scrumptious. I didn't have any potatoes, but instead used an enormous rutabaga (swede). Plus, I added jerusalem artichokes to the filling. I also used an excellent organic artisan cheddar and the whole thing turned out amazing.

Comfort food at it's finest, I like the added parsnip..and only told my relatively non vegetable eating son that I got 2 in his belly! Thanks for sharing.
