Herbed Cottage Pie

Recipe by Sageca

The herbs give an interesting variation in this old-fashioned English favourite.

Perfect recipe for a wintry Australian dinner. I threw in some frozen peas and added an extra teaspoon of worcestershire sauce (just because I love it) but followed the rest of the recipe. It was so quick and easy to make. The cheese and herbs add a lovely dimension to the topping, which I made using Recipe #106693.
