I thought this was a pretty mediocre dish. Seemed like it needed something - some sort of sauce or something to hold the meat and vegetable mixture together. It was pretty dry. From start to finish it took about an hour and just wasn't worth it in the end. My kids ate the meat and potatoes part okay, but weren't too keen on the veggies. I didn't save the 3/4 pan full of leftovers because I knew they wouldn't eat it the second day if they barely touched it when it was fresh. And I didn't care to have any of the leftovers myself. I followed the recipe to a T using frozen carrots, peas and corn as my veggies.

A very tasty casserole and one which I will certainly make again. I felt it was an adaption of a shepherd's pie. Thanks for posting.

Very good and easy to make. I used Italian Seasoning instead of oregano because that's what I had on hand. I think the next time I will make a pan of corn bread to go with it. Thanks for a very filling recipe.
