    MellowMel's Note:

    This tasted just as rich and delicious as a meat shepherds pie, but it's a great deal cheaper to make with lentils. It's a fantastic budget recipe, and very popular with my children.

      Great easy recipe for a week-night. I added more garlic, 4 sliced mushies & used beans (more than 1/2 cup) instead of peas. I'll make less mash next time. Thanks for sharing. :)

      Thanks for a winner! Everyone in my household loved it. I used brown lentils instead of red, and that's just because that's what I had on hand. Never actually cooked with red lentils before. Think it'd definitely be worth taking this around for another spin to try it out. Thank you! I love cottage pie, and this was an amazing vegetarian substitute. I would happily interchange the two.

      Thanks, this was a great meal. My husband said "very tasty" and "can we have this again?" so its a keeper:-) I used sunflower oil instead of the butter, used a little Flora Buttery and semi-skimmed milk in the mash potatoes and subed bell pepper for the peas (we had the peas as a side vegetable), didn't have any red wine so left that out. Yum Yum Yummy Yum:-)
