Found this in an old old cook-book of my mom's. Looks like it was clipped from a local newspaper.

Perfect. I was nervous, spaghetti sauce and mashed potatoes sounded strange but it was great! My husband was so happy and the kids loved the crust! The only change I did was only 1 lbs of hamburger instead of 2 and added onion before browning the hamburger. We will make again such an easy/cheap staple next time we will half the recipe and put in an 8x8 until our kids are out of the preschool age and have a bigger apatite. It was nice that I already had left over spaghetti sauce from making spaghetti 5 days earlier.
This was WONDERFUL! I used fire roasted tomato and garlic sauce for the tomato sauce and really liked the flavor.
Wonderful recipe of shepherd's pie. It's great with the crescent dough under. And the addition of spaghetti sauce is great. I used homemade spaghetti sauce. For the cheese, I used cheddar (grated). Thanks CoffeeB :) Made for Zaar Star Game
