I'm not sure where I found this, but it is so good. Great sauce for the veggies.

I actually wasn't as impressed with this recipe as other reviewers. I love that it incorporates so many vegetables in one dish. My household is vegetarian and I'm always looking for comfort food I can make that doesn't include meat. I thought this was a little bland and it defiantly isn't the same without meat. It was a bit bland and I didn't care for the way the potatoes rested on top. I plan to make it again with some additional spices and a layer of vegetarian meat crumbles.
This was a great sauce. It satisfied the way a meat shepherd's pie does. We added some thyme to the sauce since we like the flavor of thyme. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will add more veggies.
This smelled so so good in the oven but when I took it out and served it, it was a big goopy mess! I would have been embarressed serving it except for the fact that the flavor was SOOOO outstanding! Like, Annacia I thought the mashed potatoes on their own were a 5star dish. I think that mine was so liquidly because I wasn't really sure what potatoes I was supposed to use. I settled on boiling but I think they were too small for this dish and there wasn't enough potato topping to soak everything up. Next time I will use Russet, cut the sauce in half or double the veggies. Thanks for the post!
