I used 1 red pepper and 1 green pepper which and mixed some parmesan cheese into my mashed potatoes and some more ontop of the mashed potatoe. I didn't have italian style breadcrumbs so I mixed in about 1 tsp italian seasoning. 5 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp oregano seemed to work well in the pepper mix. Lovely recipe, I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!

Being Italian, I always gravitate toward Italian recipes for some reason! This one looked so good, I had to give it a try. My DS and his GF were over for supper, and I wanted to make something different. I used 3 hot and 3 sweet sausages in mine, and cut the peppers down to 2 green ones, as that's all I had. I used 4 cloves of garlic, and sprinkled the meat with garlic powder as I was browning it. I used 2 tsp. oregano for ours, and I added in some Parmesan cheese with the meat mixture also, about 1/4 cup. It was a really delicious outcome, and we will have again on our meal rotation. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great recipe, but why is it categorized under "lighter fair"? 800 cal per serving is not light.

DH and I had this for dinner awhile back. We thought it was a nice dish. Despite the hot Italian sausages, we still found the dish to be a little bit bland. Some red pepper flakes or small red chili peppers might enhance the dish. Thank you for posting.

Wow Redsie...this was so good. I am not a fan of normal shepperds pie but this is special. I loved the combination of veal and hot sausages. I used red, yellow, orange and green peppers. sweet onions and elephant garlic. I didn't have enough potatoes so my layer was thin...but perfect. It was quick and easy to make and is full of flavor. Thanks so much for sharing. I will definitely make this again...kudos BK

This is very good. I used 2 orange peppers, half of a red pepper and a green pepper. After cooking the meat and the vegetables separately, I mixed them together to ensure even distribution of the vegetables. I didn't have Italian bread crumbs so I used regular bread crumbs and mixed in a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and a good shake of dried oregano. The end result was delicious!
