Lean Shepherd's Pie

Recipe by Mustang Sally 54269

I've tried several Shepherd Pie recipes but I keep coming back to this one. This is one of the few that calls for cream corn & worcestershire to add a different twist to the recipe. Adapted from 'Cooking for the Rushed' cookbook. The original recipe uses instant mashed potatoes but I prefer to use regular ones.

Wife and I really enjoyed your dish tonight. Was simple and tasty. Did ratch it up a notch with some chopped onions and bell pepper. And, if one not adverse to calories, some sharp cheddar on top during last few minutes would be 'frosting on the cake'.
