Recipe is from Southern Living and obtained in a search for recipes for shepherd's pie... this one looked the best to me, so I tried it. It is GREAT and a regular request by the kids, especially my SIL. (Yes, yes, I know... shepherd's pie has lamb and cottage pie has beef.. but SL named this recipe, not me).
