    CookOnSunday's Note:

    I love lentils! After making some lentil meatloaf ( and lentil and rice tacos ( I wanted to expand my use of lentils to my all-time favorite dish: Shepherd's Pie! This recipe is vegetarian, wheat free and very versatile. It was a hit with my guests tonight and my carnivorous young boys had seconds. My only regret is that they ate it all!
