This is the only way that I will be making Shepherd's Pie from now on! To make it easier I bought OreIda's Ready to Mash frozen potatoes. The only change I may make in the future is to add some peas for extra nourishment. This was outstanding as is though!

recipe is poorly written - forgot the "Stir in beef broth..." on the ingredients list. Also things like 2 carrots or 3 parsnips are too vague.
