    I got this recipe from the Low Fat Blog and modified it a little bit. My boyfriend, who studied for a year abroad in England, said that his English roommates would be proud! For a twist and some more color, try it with sweet potatoes!

      This was simple, quick, and pretty tasty for me. I followed the recipe except for the oil, as I didn't have canola so subbed evoo. This is the first time I have ever made or had Sheperd's pie, so I don't have a working knowledge of it but I did enjoy it. I am glad I gave it a try and we might try this again. Thanks for posting. = )

      This was easy to make and very tasty. I used equivalent amount of fresh basil and parsley (to use it up). I also subbed celery for half the carrots and melted 6 slices of cheese on top during the last 5 minutes of baking. The meat part wasn't terribly similar to the shepherd's pie we get around here and it seemed like a lot of potatoes in proportion to the meat, but good, hearty comfort food. I'll make it again. Thanks for sharing. (By the way, in my house it serves more like 9 than 6. Very filling; I'm sure it'd be great for someone who's actually dieting - you wouldn't feel deprived at all)

      This is a great recipe. Only change I made was that I put low-sodium chicken stock in the mashed potatoes instead of butter and milk. Okay, I'll be honest, I also put about 1/4 cup low fat cream cheese :). This dish is hearty, the tomato paste brings out the flavors of the spices and meat, and I will be making it again! Thank you for posting this!
