My family RAVED about this meal. I've made Shepherd's Pie a hundred times, but not quite like this! My husband said he liked that the meat base wasn't as tomato-y as usual -- and I couldn't agree more! It was SOOO good with just a hint of tomato coming from the ketchup. The only thing I did differently with this recipe was add more veggies and some spices. Along with the S & P, I put in some orgegano, garlic and a few red pepper flakes as well as 2 small zucchinis that I grated into the meat mixture while it was simmering. Then, instead of mashing just carrots, I rinsed a bag of frozen mixed veggies that had green beans, carrots, corn and peas and poured that over the meat mixture, and then put the mashed potatoes on top. It was so yumm!! Forget my old recipe, this one is taking over! Thanks Jacquie for a great, family pleasing recipe!! P.S. -- I didn't even move this to a casserole dish -- I made the meat mixture in a deep skillet and just layered everything on top and popped it all in the oven which made clean up a snap! Thanks again!
