Low Fat Shepherd's Pie!

Low Fat Shepherd's Pie! created by katew

I got this recipe from the About.com Low Fat Blog and modified it a little bit. My boyfriend, who studied for a year abroad in England, said that his English roommates would be proud! For a twist and some more color, try it with sweet potatoes!

    This is a great recipe. Only change I made was that I put low-sodium chicken stock in the mashed potatoes instead of butter and milk. Okay, I'll be honest, I also put about 1/4 cup low fat cream cheese :). This dish is hearty, the tomato paste brings out the flavors of the spices and meat, and I will be making it again! Thank you for posting this!

    Great staple recipe for any family. Tasty and healthy. When I can stretch a pound of meat to feed the family AND have leftovers, I am thrilled. The beauty of shepherd's pie is that you do add whatever veggies are in the fridge or freezer - I used frozen peas instead of canned and added a couple stocks of celery. Served with a green salad.

    Very good overall recipe. I did make some changes using what I had on hand. I did add 2 Tbl. ketchup to the sauce. This make a very good pantry recipe.
