Very good recipe! We all enjoyed it, My friends said it was better than the shepherd's pie's they've had before, that the sauce was good :) I used frozen mixed veggies but i think steamed fresh carrots and peas would be the best :) Thanks for the good recipe! :) Just a little update: Wanted to say I still make this often and it's one of my favorite dishes, absolutely great leftovers :) I use a full 1/2 cup ketchup and 1 tsp of garlic powder and add 1 tsp onion powder and it's such great comfort food especially during the cold winter months :)
