My nontraditional shepherd's pie. It comes out creamy because of the gouda and can use up some of the summer vegetables from the garden. Isn't too unhealthy either, as far as comfort food goes :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion and cook until translucent. Add ground beef, and season (S&P, crushed red pepper and hot sauce) and cook until browned. Drain off liquid. Set aside.
  3. Cook instant mashed potatoes according to directions.
  4. Meanwhile, put cooked beef into baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. (I use a large oval corningware).
  5. Place one layer of squash. Season with S&P.
  6. Layer the gouda cheese.
  7. Place another layer of squash. Season with S&P and put a few pats of butter substitute on top.
  8. Top with green beans, season with S&P and a few more pads of butter substitute.
  9. Mix part of the beaten egg (reserving a tablespoon) into the prepared instant mashed potatoes. Spread mixture on top of casserole. Brush the remaining egg on the top.
  10. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until browned. (I have had to turn the heat up to brown the top).
  11. Serve and enjoy!
