Shepherd's Pie - a Beef and Mashed Potato Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Heather N.

In our household we called this Shepherd's Pie, although I'm not sure that this recipe is truly a "Shepherd's pie" as it is made with ground beef.

I agree with the last review, it's a good base to add on to! It was very easy and yummy. I added frozen corn and peas when I added the tomato sauce, as well as some more spices (rosemary and thyme seem to be traditional shepherd's pie spices). I needed a little water, too, to help cook the veggies.
