      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 Mom's Mashed Potatoes.

      Nice cottage pie! I really enjoyed the herbs in this. I chopped the mushrooms, and replaced the tinned tomatoes with a little extra stock and wine, as I'm not quite convinced of the place of tomatoes in a cottage pie. I used marmite and a splash of worcester sauce.

      This recipe really hit the spot last night. I used Promite for the yeast extract (I find that Vegemite can be a bit harsh in this sort of meal)and used a can of chopped tomatoes. I let the mixture simmer for about 30 minutes. Loved the cheese and herb mash...yum!!
