Simple easy, do ahead casserole. Not bad on the pocket book either.If you like a little more zing to it add 1 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce or 1 tsp chili flakes I took some shortcuts today when I made this casserole - I used precooked hamburger, a can of French cut beans, leftover celeric Mashed potatoes & bottled chopped garlic. It was In the oven in 5 minutes. It definitely needs some chili flakes or other spicy condiment

This is a good unusual version of shepard's pie.And it got my kids to eat their veggies.That makes this a keeper in my book.

Made this for dinner tonight. Quick and easy to prepare. Followed your recipe exactly except I placed everything in the casserole dish then baked it a few hours later - great for making ahead and then just baking when ready. We all liked it very much - but everyone said it seemed to be missing something - just added some salt, pepper and a small amount of diced tomato - just the little spark my family needed. Thanks for posting this easy recipe - will definately make it again.

Made this for supper last night. I assembled it in the morning and just popped it in the oven at supper time. I added green onions to the mashed potatoes. We thought this was a good quick and easy dish. I used alot of fresh green beans from our garden and it was great!
