    Lalaloula's Note:

    This yummy twist on shepherd's pie comes from German chef Tim Mälzer, but I have made it vegetarian. I hope youll enjoy it, too.

      This was really good! Before the second bite I was already being asked for the recipe. I have to admit that I swapped out some veggies based on what I needed to use, but the spirit of the recipe stayed the same and was wonderful!
